3 month old dodgy head shape

My 3 month old is a preemie, born at 35 weeks and in neonatal for 10 days. He was in an incubator for most of his stay and favoured lying with his head on the right side. His right ear sticks out a bit as a result. When he sleeps I try to move his head to the other side but he always moves it back. I noticed lately that the left side of his head at the back sticks out more than the right. He's got a david borenas (Angel vampire) type brow line like his dad but I noticed the right side sticks out more than the left. Anyone know how or if i can fix this? My health visitor and their whole department is working covid 19 and my doctors office is not seeing patients. Any advice appreciated.

This is very very common. Dont think about those dreadful helmets, many children have winky heads until they are 2

Speak to a chiropractor that specialises in pediatrics.
Seriously, my other half is a chiro.

They can gently make adjustments that can help.
