Sacral dimples? hip clicks?

When my son was born, they noticed a small sacral dimple right above his butt! They had it checked out right away & told us it was fine & they were not worried about it!

yesterday he had his first pediatrician apt & she told us she wanted us to get an ultrasound done on it...now I'm worried! 

Anyone else's kids have a dimple? What happened with it?

she also heard a 'click" in his hip, and ordered an ultrasound for that as well...

All 3 of my sons have the dimple and  I assumed it was hereditary. The doctors never seemed concern. Two of my sons had abductor muscle problems and they were treated differently. With my oldest I was told he would grow out of the problem. Not true. At the age of 5 he was fitted with twisted cable braces and wore them for a year. This did not do the trick. My second son was then put in 5 disposable diapers at a time to manipulate the muscles and he went through physical therapy. He has never had a problem since. This was back in the 80s so I am sure there are advances in the treatment of this.
