4 year old with uvula bent to one side. Takes long time to eat. Is this normal?

Hello. I have a four year old boy who is a healthy child, so far. I ve just noticed that his uvula is bent towards his right side and it looks like an L shape. He plays in a normal way. He takes a long time to eat, I gues he doesn t like cheqing and geta distracted very easily, but I just started thinking that maybe is because of the bent uvula. Please, and idea of what this is? Thank you. Luca The Camel

hi

bending of uvula to one side is normally noticed and nothing to worry about it

no action needs to be done regarding the bending of uvula to one side.

children of this age group normally have lot of variability in eating time and taking long time to eat may not be related to this

they normally get distracted very easily but if you feel if this is abnormally significant you may consult a pediatrician

take care
