The orthodontist says he has a crossbite and wants to give him a retainer to wear.

What are the chances he will grow out of this without having to spend the $$$$$$ on a retainer.

TIA

How severe is the crossbite?
That will be a big determiner of that.
Also, I have had a slight overbite my whole life and it's never really affected me at all.

I would get it. for sure. I had the same and this can be related to TMJ which will be really painful later in life.
