I saw your son's picture and was wondering if he had the H when he was born and how fast it has grown since birth. My granddaughter has a H on her scalp. She was a preemie (6 wks early) and when she was born, it was just a small red spot. The ped. said it may double in size but will eventually go away and not to worry. However, it has probably tripled in size (oval shaped like a small almond) and is also raised now. She is 3 1/2 months old.

Is there any way to determine what the rate of growth may be and when one should seek an experts advice? Also, is it common for them to periodically change colors? Some days it's bright red and on other days it has a grayish tint to it. Any information is appreciated.

God bless to all of you.
