Hello!
Welcome on HCM!

You should know that these veins are quite normal. They are present in every normal persons, but they are more prominent in children. The fact that they are very visible could be related to her skin characteristics. But there is no reason to think that they are going to pop out. In fact it is quite normal for them to be more visible during physical activity or laughing and crying, because of the changes in the pressure in the head sinuses, where they drain.
But this is not indicative of any serious medical disorder. There is no need to bring her to the doctor as she has a normal physical and mental activity.

Hope to have been helpful!
Kind regards,
Dr. Aida
