The growth of your child is below the expected range for the age. Both his height and weight are lower than 3rd centile on WHO growth charts. 1st step would be to do a dietary evaluation for adequate calories proteins and minerals. If that's adequate see a pediatrician for a physical examination for any causes. US to LS ratio. And Plotting his growth from birth till now on a growth chart. Based on that further evaluation can be done. All this can be done if you visit a pediatrician or a pediatric endocrinologist.
