My baby was small but early so big for his age. Will his height be stunted or normal as a man?

In brief: Depends
It depends on other health factors (such as why your baby was early).
Some babies have catch up growth and some don't. You won't really know until he is older. For now, your doctor will follow his growth pattern which is really what is important now.
