lopsided chest of my six year old

Hi I just noticed last night that my 6 year old son has a slightly lopsided chest. You have to look very carefully to notice it. Is this something to worry about. Has anyone noticed that with their young ones? I'm a very paranoid mom and seems like I'm always looking for something to worry about. He is perfectly healthy but looking this up online came around something called pectus excavatum which seems to be a very scary condition where the chest bone grows inwards and can affect your heart and lungs.

Just wanted to ask if someone has noticed slightly uneven chest on their young ones.

thanks
