I'm sorry sorry to hear of this.  If the brain is severely injured at birth, there may be so much damage that the brain doesn't grow properly.  The skull grows in response to the growing brain inside.  This may be the reason that the skull is fused early in one of the sutures (The sutures are the areas between the separate skull bones and is the area where the skull grows)  The area where the sutures are fused is an area where you son's brain is not growing normally.

I can't tell you if fixing the skull with surgery would have ANY effect on your son's development.  I doubt that it would.  The comment on the CT scan that the CSF spaces are prominent both inside the brain and also outside the brain also show this problem with the brain not growing properly.

Your answer will have to come from a pediatric neurosurgeon or pediatric neurologist who can look at the images directly.
