In brief: 2nd opinion
Your pediatrician is likely correct, though you may want to get a second opinion.
If you or baby's dad have the same type of eyes, than it is just an inherited trait. If his eyes are quite different from yours and are truly getting traumatized, you should consider seeing a pediatric ophthalmologist. Your pediatrician can refer you as needed.

If the eyes are truly protruding enough to be causing problems, lid surgery may be needed.

The question to be resolved is this normal for this baby or is there something causing this change, then the appropriate therapy can be instituted.
It would be proper to consult with a pediatric ophthalmologist.
