In brief: Needs to an ENT

Important to see a pediatric ENT if you have one in your town.
If he has a correctable problem it could be fixed. If he has a nerve damage to the auditory nerve or the hearing apparatus (cochlea) the chances of regaining hearing are minimal. However the child has only unilateral hearing problem, may not develop speech deficit.
