Thanks for your query.

If the developmental milestones normally attained at 3 years of age are present in your child then there would be no need to worry.

The ones like riding a tricycle, speech, recognition of male and female , toilet training etc.There are normally attained milestones by a child of 3 years.If you see any of them not developed in your child then the change in the skull noticed could be an important consideration.

You may have to XXXXXXX a Pediatrician who after examining can find out some clues into the cause of such a change in the skull.Yes, drooling sometimes is linked with Central nerves system problems.

Wish you good health.
