What a cutie! My daughter had a very similar H but it was on her nasal fold. When it was about the size of your son's (but she was 3 months), we started propranolol and it is nearly gone now (she's 8 months). I do not think propranolol works if it is already in involution though. If it is involuting on it's own, I would probably let it run its course. It will go away on it's own without medication. However, if you continue to notice growth, I would talk to your doctor again or get a second opinion if they continue to say wait and see. Propranolol was wonderful for my daughter.
