In brief: Eye problem?
Head tilt can be a sign of visual or ophthalmological disease.
It can also be a developmental problem or neurologic sign of illness. Please have a thorough examination done by your pediatrician. Age and developmental status is an important variable we don't have here to help with an appropriate answer.

In brief: Check w/ Ped
The pediatrician should evaluate the infant to rule-out a physical restriction to neck movement ("torticollis").
The pediatrician may order neck x-rays and/or refer the baby for specialty evaluation by a craniofacial or a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. After being certain there ids no physical problem, the infant may be referred for neck physical therapy including a daily home neck therapy program.
