RDW and MPV low

My son's
RDW is 11.0 Biological Ref. range is 11.6-14  Unit FL
MPV is 6.22 Biological Ref. range is 6.8-10.9  Unit FL.

What does this means? Is there something to be worried about.
Are you (or the subject of the question) male or female?

He is not too low, just below the lower end of the ranges. Suggest having his doctor draw blood for a complete iron profile and vitamin B12 to rule out any anemia. Thank you for your question.
