Since there is insufficient information to answer your question, go to http://www.healthychildren.org/English/tips-tools/Pages/default.aspx for CDC growth charts for boys & girls age 2-20. Plot weight & height for age in years & months. Calculate body mass index, http://bmisite.net/bmi-children.php?gclid=CKiGzPuXocACFa5AMgodPXsAig. A BMI of 5th-85th%ile is in the normal range.
