Brief Answer:
Please upload images

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me tell you that in case of twins, they need to remain packed in a close space and the shape of head may get distorted to some extent depending on the space available. Usually much of it eventually gets corrected on its own. However, in order to ascertain whether treatment might be required a proper observation/evaluation is needed. I would insist you to post some images from different angles and I will try to guide you accordingly.

Let me know if I could help further.

Brief Answer:
No interventions needed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back. I have checked the attached images. The distortion in shape is not significant enough to require interventions. Nothing needs to be done. Just leave it alone and let the child grow. Much of it will correct on its own.
