Hi,
How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Microcephaly or small head  is a neurodevelopmental disorder in which the circumference of the head is more than two standard deviations smaller than average for the person's age and sex.  It  can also be associated with other conditions like diabetes, radiation exposure and infection. However,  it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation and diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
