In brief: 3 mo, if not see dr
Unsteady head after 3 mo of age should be mentioned to your doctor. Physical therapy, as part of the early intervention program, does a great job of improving strength and other developmental outcomes.

In brief: Overtime
Babies develop control over their bodies and head as a process that moves from the head down.
Babies begin lifting their heads usually by one month and gradually develop more and more control. By three months they can usually turn there heads from side to side.
