Does his tongue look normal? I never noticed the band on the top of his tongue before.

Looks like he has an anterior tie.

I've been trying to get him looked at for a tongue tie, and have been told by 2 different pediatricians that he was fine. My DH caught this pic yesterday, and I thought it looked funny.

I'm not surprised you have been told that and still wouldn't be if 10 peds had said it! Ankyloglossia is a very specific study and you have to take it upon yourself to become educated about it. Meaning, it's not taught in medical school. Have you looked at the tongue tie resources sticky on here? Join the tongue tie babies support group too if you're on Facebook.

I did, and I joined a Facebook group. I found a doctor nearby who I will be trying to get into so that he can be evaluated.

You may want to check under his top lip for a tie, also.
