Q.

front fontanal closure

A month ago I posted a question regarding the subject. After taking an xray, we were told by our doctor to monitor the head measurement of our son. At that time his head measurement was 43cm.
At 5 weeks later (he is now 6 months old), we measured his head and it is 43.2cm.
Is this in line with his age and is it a cause for concern. What should be the normal progression of his head measurement by now?
Very worried...

Your baby son's head circumference is now exactly on the average for his age , so there is no need for concern.
