Can the shape of my son's head be corrected?
Q: My 20 months old son's head is flat. He used to look only on his left side when he was 7 months old. Is there any chance of his head shape being corrected? Please advise.
A:Is the head flat at the back? This is known as plagiocephaly. There is no cause for concern if the head size is growing normally, there is no disfigurement, and the developmental milestones are normal. Ask your pediatrician to check the size of the head when you visit him.
