So my 3 month old has had a stuffy nose for about a week now. Well last night when I was changing his diaper it looked like a couple of his rips looked like they colapsed. Is this normal or should I call the doctor. He hasn't been fuzzy and doesn't have a fever. Here lately it has been afecting his eating a little bit but not much. He is retracking a little. So is it normal for rips to look like they colapsed a little? Any advice Helps. Thank you in advanced.

Thank you ladys I will call the Doctors tomorrow and make an appointment to get it checked out. Just thought it was weird but doesn't seem to bother him though. Thanks again ladys.

Where does it look like that? My son has pectus excavatum. It looks like he has a sunken chest in between his ribs. His was noticeable at birth but I've heard other moms didn't notice it until later on.

On his right side done at the bottom of his ribs. When he breathes in you middle of his chest and both sides sink in but when you feel the right side you feel the ribs and going down it sinks in a bit.
