Brief Answer:
These are bony prominence and they are entirely normal!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I have reviewed the attached images. These prominences are normal and there should be no fear about this. The posture of the leg is what makes this prominences more visible.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.

Will he outgrow them. I don't have them on my ankles. Do only kids have these?

Hi and thank you so much for this follow up.

Kids will normally outgrow this. For now, monitor only and do not seek any aggressive medical evaluation because this will not necessarily provide any additional vital information.

I wish you well.
