Brief Answer:
Needs observation and follow up echoes

Detailed Answer:
Since it's a very small VSD, there is 60-70 percent chance that this will close spontaneously. At this stage, just observation is necessary and no active treatment is needed. You need to get repeat echo done after three months.
Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
