Ridge on baby boys head normal??

My son is 4.5 months old and I have recently noticed a ridge developing along the top of his head is this a normal part of growing.

I've got an appointment to see the doctor already but it's a few weeks away  so please no bashing 

I have tried to attach a photo but it's not the best quality. 



  • It’s hard to tell from the pic... Is he dehydrated atl? It could be that rather than a ridge developing, his fontanelle (soft spot) is sunken a bit... which can happen if baby is a bit dehydrated

  • Morning, could be craniosynitosis. There's four types one being a ridge down the forehead. See your gp and will refer you to the paediatric team xx
