Bracket shaped legs


My son is 15 months and started walking at 12 months. I' m worried about his legs. They are bracket shaped and my mom said they will will straighten up in time. The thing is I don' t want to wait till its late and also I don' t want to offend my mom. When should I be more worried and what should I do?

Your advice will be highly appreciated.
