  • Depends on height and bone structure. DS is 7, 52" tall and only weighs 46lbs. He has tiny bones and yes, he eats a lot.

  • A 9 year old (male) child who is 95 pounds and is 5 feet and 1 inches tall has a body mass index of 18.0, which is at the 79th percentile, and would indicate that your child is at a healthy weight.


    Got that from the previous link posted :)

  • My SS is 9 1/2 and weighs 43lbs and only 43 inches tall. He is at a stage they are concerned about his growth. I'd say your son is at a healthy stage.

  • Ugg people! bones are "big" or "small" they can be different lengths, but do not vary too much in size of the same height. SUCH a myth.
    We cant tell you what he should weigh as you didnt say how tall he was.
