Q.

Flat Head

Please can you give me any information on this.
My nephew is 4 months old, and the one side of his head is completely flat and the otherside is largly rounded.
He battles to hold his head up and seems to favour the flat side of his head.

Other than this he is a very happy baby.
What could this be? Is there a cause for concern?
