In brief: Depends on dose/age

Mercury is more toxic in organic form than elemental form and much more detrimental to fetus/infants than adults.
There are medications that can bind to mercury and remove it from body if an adult is exposed to elemental Hg, not much can be done for fetus/infant exposed to organic Hg.
