Why is my Head Egg Shaped? Can It Be Fixed at 16 Years Old?

I was born with a non-egg shaped head and it has eventually formed into the form of well, and egg. Can it be fixed at my age of 16?

Head shape


That need to be evaluated by a cranio-facial surgeon. The shape of the skull is determined by the closure of the suture line between the different bones that make the skull.
