my son is 2 years 8 months, when he was born I never knew that when giving birth I should shape his head, his head is not round and its stresses me coz people stare so much at him and I don't know what to do. his very intelligent and I pray he continues that way, but am afraid when he goes to school he will be given names, anyone like me out there moms........

What do you mean by not round?
Usually, if the head is severely misshapen, the pediatrician will prescribe a sort of helmet that will shape the baby's head, but this is usually done long before the 3 year mark. Have you spoken to your pediatrician about your concerns? What was his/her advice?
