In brief: It Depends

When learning to walk, children use a strange gait that develops into a normal one over time.
Some children are born with foot or leg deformities that also correct over time. However, children are more prone to injury, such as fracture, in general. They also are prone to other conditions such as septic joints and transient synovitis. Please see a doctor for further evaluation.
