thanks for asking f
i gone through your question and understand your concern
you son is of one year of age, his weight is 10 kg . and in your view height is not good.
10 kg weight for 1 year old boy is absolutely normal, the average lenght of 1 year boy is 75 cm. you can your self take his lenght by tailor tape or can visit pediatrican for it. so i think there is not thing to concer. child be healthy, not fatty. give him balanced diet like rice, dal, green vegetable, wheat, milk about 5 times per day.
we suggest iron suppliment for kids 1 mg per kg per day till they reach their adulthood . and syp albendazole every six month for dewarming till age of 5 years. dose of syp albendazole(BANDY) 5 ml once till age of 2 year, and above age of 2 year 10 ml.
