Extreme conical/flat head at 12 weeks. Will this go away on its own ?

Took this pic of baby boy when we made him sleep on side to prevent further flat head. I can feel 'flat' spot on his backside .
I have attached pic. Please see it and please tell me if its too much. I am thinking of talking to paeditrician as well about this when we take him to 14 week vaccination .

It looks entirely normal to me; the vast majority of babies end up with slightly flat heads these days due to the 'back to sleep' advice.

Was it a ventouse delivery ? My dad head was like that and I can't remember when it went back to normal .

I meant my dd sorry and she is 17 and has a normal head so it must have gone back but she was a ventouse delivery and her head went back to normal at some point , I just can't remember when.
