Hi,

Consult an orthopaedician and get evaluated. As a first line management you can take analgesics like Paracetamol or Aceclofenac for pain relief. Surgical correction is not required at this age.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain,
