Toe in- Toe out.: Although it is impossible to say for certain, but the chances are , he will out grow it. One indicator is to take a look at his father. There is a higher chance of your son not outgrowing it if the father has the same problem. Muscular dystrophy is not at issue here. To remove all doubt, consult with a pediatric orthopedic surgeon or a foot specialist.
