Flat head syndrome

My grandson is 2 months old and only likes to sleep on one side. We are worried about flat head syndrome, can you advise if this is a concern and what to do about it.
Thank you

It is best to try to position your little baby grandson so that he sleeps on his back. He will get used to sleeping in this position, but this is the time to try to get him used to the new position before he gets to be any older.
