Hi Peggy,

Welcome to HCM.
Double creases on buttocks of newborn is nothing to worry about. Newborns do have lot of extra creases which gradually disappear as they gain weight.
Usually newborn with low berth weight tend to have wrinkled skin which fills out as they grow.
Breast Feed the child regularly and stop worrying about those extra creases.
Happy rearing.
