What is the difference between dimpled fat and not dimpled?

I know- strange questions but my 9 yr old son has packed on pounds big time this past year and it's all above the waist. His stomach and love handles are all dimply fat...

  • it is the muscle tone under the skin. he doesn't have much muscle tone in his belly.
    if he is eating well and exercising, then i wouldn't worry about it. sometimes kids will grow wide first, then lengthen out.
