Probably normal: A new baby's bones are soft and can seem to be unusually shaped. This is often due to how snug they are in the womb. Shin bones can appear bowed and often will straighten out when they bear weight (child is standing and walking). Ask your doctor or nurse at your next well-child visit if they think it is mild or something that needs checking out.

Birds: Avian flu is caused by influenza viruses that mostly live in certain types of birds and make them sick. Very rarely such strains of flu virus will infect humans and make them sick. When such strains are found, the bird flock is usually killed. The area of the world, the person's nearness to sick birds and the strength of the person's immune system are all important factors in a person's risk.

See his MD/nurse: There are a lot of reasons for a child to have a lump under the arm. It usually comes from the body fighting germs from a skin scrape or infection. Things that are important are how long it's been there, does it hurt, is it red, is it getting bigger, and are there other lumps hiding elsewhere (along the neck, groin, other armpit, etc). It's important to talk to his doctor or nurse about it.
