My boyfriend says he has a flat affect. I don't notice. So should this be cause for worry?

In brief: Perhaps

If your boyfriend thinks it is a problem, it may well be.
Or it may just be normal for him. It would be good to have him evaluated for depression or other mood disorders by his primary care provider. A good preventive resource that outlines general screening tests, including a screen for depression, is an iphone app called my health checklist 2012.
