Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Human ribs are connected in the middle by the sternum or also called the sternum. At the bottom of the sternum (protrudes toward the solar plexus), there is a protrusion called the processusxiphoideus. The protrusion that you see in the middle of the upper abdomen near the rib cage is probably the process of xiphoideusini. You can pay attention to the following picture to find out the anatomical condition of normal human bones:

If you are still unsure, you can ask the child's doctor directly when you bring your child to do routine baby examinations and immunizations

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
