what is the significance of a unilateral "wide" epicanthus? would the main concern be starbismus/pseudostrabismus, how do you differentiate, and are there any other differentials to consider? 


(my 10 week old son is said to have a "wide" epicanthus on the left, and at times he appears to have a "lazy" eye, but he has no trouble focusing on objects or making eye contact with me.  he was born full term, at 40 weeks and was 9lbs 6oz, with an uneventful vagina delivery if birth stats have any significance)

I am not familiar enough with this to be able to answer. Your doctor would be able to help differentiate between strabismus and pseudostrabismus. That's too complicated to answer here.
