My son is 22 months he's 41 inches tall and 38 lbs; my daughter is 10 months 36 inches and 35 lbs. They are both at the top of growth charts but their doctor said just last week they look great not to change anything about what we do with them. Your son is just a larger child not obese his BMI was 21 which is in a normal range.

Have you checked out BMI calculators? According to the one I use it said yes that the average weight for age and height is 32-38 pounds and that represents 5th-85th percentile.

ETA: What does your dr think? Is he able to run around with other kids? What does he eat?
