Is it normal to detect a heart murmur until now that my kid is 4 yrs old. Never got found when she was a baby.

In brief: Common finding

If i listen to a kid often enough i will eventually hear a murmur.It is more likely to be an innocent one than one meaning something bad.
Even significant murmurs are not always evident at birth but may be detected at 2-4 months of age or older, since the pressures within the heart shift from pre to post birth work.
