Microform cleft lip

Hi this is great to know this is here. I have a healthy beautiful 2 month old son and he was born with the tiniest microform cleft there is a tiny notch and scar- hardly noticeable. I have met with a cleft lip and palate team for information etc and a specialist in children with facial defects. I feel so lucky that he was born with only this and not an open cleft meaning surgery is not a must although this makes the decision harder. I also heard this type is rare so it has been impossible to find anyone who has been through the same thing... Just wondering if any other mums have experienced this and what their thoughts are? I feel I should wait to see how it develops and if it bothers him when he is older we can get the surgery.
