I am worried about my son's growth. We have to take him yearly for a visit. He is 9 and weighs 52.5lbs and is 49.5 in tall. Should I be worried?

Need to plot growth: As a parent it can be very scary and feeling like your child's numbers are a test in your parenting. Generally we like to know trends and not absolutes. Take a look at this link and see if your son follows his curve.
Typically if kids are in the middle of the curve and follow it, we don't worry.
Outliers require some more thought.
