In brief: At birth

Children born with pws often have difficulties with tone from birth and therefore difficulty feeding.
Boys may have undescended testes. Symptoms like insatiable appetite generally don't become apparent until the child is about 2-3 years-old. Pws patients are usually short and also have developmental delays.
