In brief: Yes, developing

The bones on the skull are not fused, thus alllows shifting during birthing process/easier for head to get throught the vaginal canal.
So, the bones have higher density and appear brigher on us and thus u may be seeing gaps in between the bones. I am sure the doc will let her know if there are concerns. Otherwise, the bones of skull continue to change for years to come..Good luck..
