  • There are some rare abnormal conditions which may result in a persistent open fontanel, but there are usually other signs such as an excessively large head or other noticeable abnormalities; almost never does an open anterior fontanel by itself mean something serious is wrong. An infant with a persistent fontanel should be checked by measuring head circumference regularly, as well as by monitoring development and growth in other areas. If these are normal, an open fontanel is generally not something to worry about

  • Soft spots on top of the your DD's head can take up to 18 to 24 months to close. If it doesnt close by then the Dr might keep an eye on it but so far it is normal.
