The Head Of The Crown Is Somewhat Sunken?
Hello my child is now 2 months 1 week my head is in the front of the head, rather concave, maybe right at birth, because my breath runs out when I talk about it, my question is whether the shape of his head will be able to return to normal because the side looks really sunken, I’m waiting the answer thank you
Hello Rupmini, thank you for asking.
The skulls on the baby's head have not been fused with one another. The border between the skull bones is called a sutura. In the fetus and baby, the sutures have not closed, so the skull bones can shift from one another. This allows the fetal head to be born through the vagina.
This open sutura is what causes the baby to have the crown. Tufts consist of a large one (located further forward) and a small one (located further back, after the crown of the head). The fontanel slowly closes starting from large fontanel, approximately from the age of 6 months, up to about 18 months.
You have to make sure what you mean by concave, is the shape of the head bone or crown. Concave on the crown is a sign of dehydration due to lack of drinking or vomiting and diarrhea. Symptoms of dehydration are accompanied by dry skin and wrinkles, sunken eyes, dry muluy, weak babies, decreased urinating. If you find this condition, contact your doctor immediately because dehydration in infants can be fatal.
If you mean the form of a concave head bone, then the shape may still change. The shape and size of the baby's head will continue to change until finally the sutures close and the bones harden. If the basin is not too deep, it might not have any effect, except for aesthetic issues. When the basin is deep, there may be an impact on brain development that can occur. To find that out, you should consult your pediatrician.
So little information that I can convey. May be useful. Regards.
