In brief: Seek consultation

There is often a geneticist affiliated with a medical school or children's hospital that can help you find some answers.
Some developmental pediatricians have also gained experience in determining which infant features suggest a syndrome or genetic issue. Your dr may be able to help you find a source or look to the above resources.

Another way to access a genetic evaluation is to contact your state's Early Intervention program; it's ok to ask your pede for referrals.
