Thank for asking to HCM
Look it is very difficult to say any thing until and unless one see the clinical condition of kid, I think the doctor must have noticed something abnormal and he must be suspicious for thyroid gland dysfunction, you better discus it with your doctor who asked for the test, carried out test is not normal indicative of thyroid dysfunction, still to confirm it, send the test when child becomes three months old, have nice day.
