I haven't seen a soft spot on my babys head, do all off them have it or has it already clossed. Beacause since he was born i never noticed a soft spot, i couldn't see any.

This will be evaluated at the 6 weeks follow up examination. It is usually not visible, but you have to feel for it in the correct place. The largest soft spot usually closes by 10-18 months.
