In brief: It can be genetic.

Scoliosis--abnormal curvature of the spine--can be hereditary or it may develop from injury or infection.
Obviously your son's pediatrician is the best resource to determine if this presumptive scoliosis is abnormal requiring orthopedic intervention. A pediatric orthopedist is also well qualified to answer your concerns. Call for an appointment soon.
