In brief: No
This could be congenital adrenal hyperplasia which is a potentially life threatening disorder. See your doctor asap.

In brief: No
It is not normal for a baby to have "pubic hair" on the pubic area.
However, it can be normal for a baby to have short "body hairs", not true "pubic hairs", on the pubic area (tends to happen in families where everyone has body hair). One should ask the doctor to look at the hairs at the next check up visit.

It is normal for babies to have fine hairs on various parts of their body, including the ears, shoulders, forehead, and even the pubic area.
Also, some families tend to have darker and more easily seen hair. However, thicker and darker hairs in the pubic area, especially if they are new, should be examined.
