Thanks for the query.
It looks like straibsmus or may be habitual.

Strabismus, commonly referred to as crossed or wandering eyes, occurs when one or both eyes turns in or out, up or down. The condition is caused by the brain's inability to coordinate both eyes.

I would suggest you to see a opthalmologist as it needs examination by a doctor.

Hope i helped you.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the follow up.

It may be Accommodative esotropia, or refractive esotropia which refers to eye crossing that is caused by the focusing efforts of the eyes as they try to see clearly. Patients with refractive esotropia are typically farsighted (hyperopic). This means that the eyes must work harder to see clearly, particularly when the object of regard is up close. This focusing effort is called accommodation.

Better you consult and get examined your child by opthalmologist.
