Thanks for writing in.
Generally, the shape of the child's head changes with age as the skull itself is too soft at this age. It can appear slightly misshapen at this age. However, in order to be sure, I would want you to upload a picture of your son. I would like to see the shape of his head. That will help us find out if its a normal variation or its something abnormal.
Please use the 'Upload your reports' section to upload his picture.
