hey 17 month old boy has a head circumference 44.5 cms he doesn't walk within support can stand though some several minutes... he is not able to stack rings says only a word or 2 meaningful words rest all blabbering...I am very worried about his head circumference doctor says MRI is needed to rule out any structural abnormality ... But something doesn't convince me that he has a problem just feel he is slow but will get there eventually... Has anybody been in a similar situation??

If his head is not growing as it should then that means his brain is not growing right. This is a concern and may not fix itself on it's own. This is really something that should be looked into. You do need to follow your doctor's advice.
