Q.

Knee joints

My son can move his knee joints and not feel pain. This also happens to his elbow when i lift him by his wrist. There will be a slight discomfort but not pain. Is there any thing to worry about?

I am not exactly sure what you describe, but if there is any concern it is best to have it formallly evaluated. It may be due to ligamentous laxity, but I connot judge from the limited information provided.
