We have a newborn baby with the left eyeball much smaller than the right eyeball, the eyebrows are different sizes and also the eye sockets.

It depends on the actual size of the eye, and the degrees of ocular development. A pediatric ophthalmology assessment is recommended to assess the situation. The ophthalmologists be able to make a diagnosis based on this assessment.
