This is probably going to make me look sooooo stupid but my son is in the 5th percentile in height so does that make him taller than 95% of babies or shorter?
He's 12 months and 72cm/around 29/30 inches he's also 10/15 percentile in weight. Is everything normal?

If its on the chart its normal. 5th is at the lower end of the range. He sounds perfectly in proportion.

5th centile means 5% are shorter, 95% taller. Weight is proportional so no reason to be concerned.
