Greetings. Definitely this can be and has to be surgically repaired. Kindly see a qualified pediatric surgeon or a plastic surgeon at the earliest. They would be the ideal doctors to guide you after a due examination as to which would be the best form of surgery and when it should be done. Warm regards.
