Brief Answer:
yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
Yes, there is a chance that kidneys will grow and you should hope that it will since it is not uncommon that kidney are smaller in size but it may have adequate function. also, if only one kidneys show adequate grow,it is enough for normal function. You should repeat ultrasound in 1 week and check amnion fluid volume. Wish you good health. Regards
