What happens if you don't have any treatments done for your son's aortic stenosis, will it eventually resolve?

In brief: No
Aortic stenosis does not resolve over time.
However, it can remain stable. There are some fairly decent established criteria for when to intervene (depends on echo measures and other symptoms/conditions). Please discuss your specific issues with your cardiologist.

In brief: Worsen over time
As in infancy is usually responsive to a catheter based stretching maneuver. If not done the lower chamber wall will gradually thicken & poor growth ensues.
Regular followup during infancy & childhood can prevent the rather silent approach of an enlarged heart & other issues that require other treatments.This does not go away if you ignore it.

In brief: It will not resolve
Aortic stenosis does not regress.
It is almost always progressive. If left untreated, it can place a significant strain on the heart.
