separated abdominal muscles in children?!

I'm all to aware of the 2-3 finger gap between my ab's after my 1st pregnancy, but I noticed the other night that my dd (21mths) also has a gap. She's always had a pot belly, and when she lifts her head when lying down you can see a bulge from the sternum (breast bone) to her belly button and it's soft like the muscles have separated.

Don't know if I'm being PFC about this, but two consultants have done tummy-touches on her for other reasons and not noticed anything, but it seems a bit odd to me.

Any thoughts?
