Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. The mentioned features could be normal or could represent a syndromic association. It would be best to discuss this with her pediatrician at her next visit and if the pediatrician feels that a karyotyping is suggested, it can be done to rule out genetic associations.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
