    This is a human baby? Chances are he is ok. You should tell his mom so you can feel better.

    Um how old are we talking here? All babies have a soft spot on the front of their head when they are very young. Yes it is a very sensitive area but no cause for concern.

    if he is older then perhaps you should bring it up but I'm not sure if it's dangerous or not.

    It would take quite a blow to harm the brain through the membrane . I wouldn't worry ......but you should tell the Mom .

    I'm sure he's fine. All babies have soft spots.

    Rylie and Chloe (my dogs) both have soft spots as well, haha :D

    It is normal. Don't stress, it will cover over with age.

    Babies are actually born with an anterior fontanel (soft spot in the front) and a posterior fontanel (soft spot in the back) The one in the back is much smaller than the one in the front. They will close up on their own.

    sometimes the babies will be two or three years old before it closes up
