In brief: Aspiration?

Watch for choking episodes, or recurrent pneumonia, or shortness of breath.
These symptoms would require help from a pediatric ENT doctor.

In brief: Waiting

The general advice is to watch and see if it improves naturally, as long as the baby has no other symptoms.
Then a specialist needs to be involved.
