Brief Answer:
No need to correct now - it will get better as the kid starts rolling over

Detailed Answer:
Hi...I understand your concern...No need to correct now - it will get better as the kid starts rolling over in a few months.

It is due to soft skull bones and positioning now. Don't worry about it.
