Children's eyes can move independently of each other for up to 4 months. Aside from that, at 9 weeks, they have only a very small distance that they can see well within. Hold him close to you and see if that doesn't make a difference. I think he can only focus for about 10 inches in front of his face at this age. It is nothing to worry about. Most of the time doctors don't really consider eye focus until about 4 months as that is when they can use the eyes together and also when they have the distance to see better. Hope that makes sense, I have the flu and am a little scatterbrained right now.
