I'm not sure that I detect any asymmetry from the photo that you posted. If the issue is not affecting your child's vision or causing any problems, I would not do anything at present. If there is some cosmetic issue causing asymmetry, it could be dealt with when the child becomes an adult.
Asymmetric Eyes in an Infant
Any concern of possible visual compromise in an infant should be addressed to rule out amblyopia. Very difficult to assess with one picture and an exam should be performed.
