What do mean by under developed? Like he is just small? or does he have other issues? If your son is always sick and not gaining weight then talk to your doctor about testing. If your son is just small I wouldn't worry. My daughter is almost 3 and only weighs 22 pounds. She is healthy, has energy, and is developing just fine. The doctor did test her kidneys last year, but the test turned out fine and I declined to have her tested further.
