There may be a problem with the reports. Get it evaluated again. Also if the reports come out the same, his dosage needs to be changed. He may be having other congenital anomalies which cause obesity. Kindly discuss with the Paediatrician regarding this.

welcome to health care magic
its quiet common to gain weight in hypothyroidism even if your under medication.
i will suggest you to start homeopathy treatment simultaneously so that your baby will get rid of thyroid problem permanently.
good luck
