In brief: Hard to say

The description you give does not provide enough information.
An infant should have a relatively small vaginal opening. An examination by the pediatrician should confirm or exclude any abnormality.If found to be abnormal, the course of treatment would be guided by exam findings.

In brief: Meds/surgery

For vaginal stenosis (narrowing): eventually your baby girl may need topical estrogen or a minor procedure.
Continued follow up the pediatrician is necessary to determine the correct treatment.
