Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The heart is slow. Less than 60 is bradycardia.
ECG is necessary to document. Most times, 24 hours monitoring (Holter) is needed.

Fluttering may or may not be related to the heart / it could be muscle twitching too...

You must see a cardiologist - that is the only way.
Physical examination and investigation alone will shed light.
At this age, congenital heart disease is probable.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
