Our son had 6 mos. checkup and head is 46 CM (93rd %), same as chest. Went up from 43.5 CM at 4 mos (75th). Weight now 18 lb, length 69.85 cm. Ok?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

The most common reason for dramatic changes in head size that I see are errors in measurement.
If he is developing normally, I would recommend discussing your concerns with his doctor at his next check up. If not, a sooner visit is in order.
