Decrease in infant head growth percentile

I am concerned because my son's head growth dropped 20% from 58% to 38% at his 1 year check up.  He has a metopic ridge, but all the Pediatricians that he has seen feel it is minimal and no reason for concern at this time.  The Pediatrician consulted a specialist and both agreed to wait 1 month and remeasure his head.  After doing research, I am concerned about microcephaly.  Has anyone else experience this before (decrease in head growth), and, if so, what was the outcome?  I am praying he is fine!  I'm very worried, but I am hopeful that he is OK.
