You do not mention where your son has this hernia, but I presume that this is an umbilical [belly-button] hernia as this is very common in young children.Umbilical hernias usually close off by themselves. If your son still has this hernia when he is three years old it would be best to take him to see a paediatric surgeon for an opinion on what needs to be done.
