Baby's skull bones question?

589 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  JamieCatheryn
My 4 month old is healthy and happy and I'm not particularly worried but...
He has a soft ridge on his skull that feels like it has not grown together on one side. It goes from about his ear and leads to his soft spot. It's like a long skinny ridge that is a soft spot. It's about 2/10 of an inch wide I'd say.

Anyone know anything about this?

He goes for his 4 month well baby visit in a week or 2 so I'll find out more then. Just curious now.

Sounds normal? Maybe? I don't know... but I hate it when I ask a question and no one responds.

Your response was kind of funny!
Ask the ped, but soft spots don't close up until later so it's likely fine.
