Is he gaining weight well?
Does he look at you when you feed him?
Can you console him when he cries?
Does he move everything - arms and legs?
You should see your baby's doctor to ask these? 's. ...Read more
Yes.: Weight varies with height. But head size has nothing to do with height or weight. So although it is possible that someone's body could grow to match their large head, there is no guarantee it will happen. Further, the percentage of your body length that is your head is about 30% at birth, but only 10% as an adult, so babies tend to have bigger heads than adults. ...Read more

Usually it is so..: Normally, head-size is proportional to height. In pediatric care, head circumference, length (height) and weight measurements are very important part of each well visit. Headsize and height will continue to grow proportionately until shortly after puberty. Once max growth in height is achieved, head size stops even if one continues to grow sideway (unfortuately too much in us). Good luck. ...Read more
Not after puberty: Your head grows fastest during first 2 yrs of life, then slows down until puberty with growth spurt. Once you're done with growth in height--about 16-17 for girls, and 19-20 for boys, your head will not likely have any significant growth--except maybe for gigantism. You are now 45, your headsize won't change even as you are growing sideway. Keep healthy and ideal body weight. Cosult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Head size and wt:
I am assuming that you are a fully grown adult, your skull size will not increase in size.

Therefore, no. ...Read more

A big head is good!: Research published 2 years ago in neurology®, the medical journal of the american academy of neurology, showed that "people with alzheimer's disease who have large heads have better memory and thinking skills than those with the disease who have smaller heads, even when they have the same amount of brain cell death due to the disease." so, yes, it appears that size matters when it comes to heads. ...Read more
