In an otherwise normal healthy baby, this condition is called plagiocephaly and is very common. It usually occurs because a baby is constantly placed on a particular side, or in a particular part of a room where he will always turn his head towards light or people. The best advice is to change the position that the baby is placed in and to put the cot etc. in a different part of the room where he will be inclined not to lie on the flat side of his head when turning his head towards people or light. If there is any abnormality in the child's development this needs to be evaluated immediately. Head control should be reasonable at 4 months and good at 6 months.
