Hi,

Not sure if this is something that warrants a trip to the Dr so would be keen to hear others experience. Sorry if I have posted in the wrong place.

Just noticed when he was wandering around in his vest before bed time that my son has a crease on his left thigh but doesn't have one in the same place on his right.

Do i need to get this checked out. He walks and climbs etc.

No useful advice @owlettele but my 15 month old has the same!

Usual creases behind his knees and an extra one above on the back of his right leg. He's always had it. I just assumed it was baby podge related but he's much taller now and it's still there.

I've not worried about it, just thought it was cute grin, I'm guessing it'll disappear when he grows some more...

Awesome thank you. It does look very cute. He has only recently started to get a bit chubbier as weaning and eating was difficult due to allergies. So I do like his new folds. Thanks so much for your reply. It has helped to know others are the same.

My 15month DS is the same. Mentioned it to GP who sent him for a scan to check for hip dysplasia but they found no issues! Apparently uneven thigh creases are very common but it’s more of an issue if the gluteal creases are uneven. This website explains it well:

Thanks for the link @HeyJupiter, I shall be checking DS's bottom at Bath time tonight.

I've not noticed anything and he's been walking well for a few months so sounds like he's OK but very useful to know.
