I'm just looking for a bit of comparison. I'd also be interested if anyone can say what is 'average' for that age, Mine is 4ft8 and weighs 7st 8lbs.

Have you looked at child bmi calculators? He is very overweight... Mine's about the same weight but 5ft4 and average build.

I know he's overweight, that much is obvious from his appearance, but I didn't think he was 'very overweight'

Well a 12 year old boy who is 4ft 8 tall and 5 stone 10 lbs is around the 50th centile - so 50% of boys the same age and height are heavier, and 50% are lighter, so I guess that would suggest he was about two stone overweight.

I never realised he was that overweight

if you type it in to a bmi calculator it puts him on the 98th centile for weight and says he is 'very overweight'

my son will be 12 in august. he is about 5' 4" and 7 stone 11
