In brief: No
Frontal sinuses are located just above the nose and are not formed in an young child; maxillary sinuses that are located on either side of the nose do not get blocked as they have a large opening.
So, sinus infections do not happen in infants. Yellow eyes are from jaundice or severe cases of hypercarotenemia. So, if the eyes are yellow, the infant needs to be evaluated by a physician.

In brief: No
Yellow eyes are most likely from jaundice, except for marked hypercarotenemia from consuming "yellow vegetables".
Frontal sinuses are located just above the nose area and they are not formed in an young child. Maxillary sinuses that are located on both sides of nose have a very large openings with no potential for blockage. So, common sinus infections do not happen in infants.
