Squint that develops in early childhood could be due to glass power requirement, or eye muscle problem, or a combination of both. In some situations, only spectacles will be enough, others would need surgery also. Paediatric ophthalmologist's advise will be the best for your child. My opinion - you must go for surgery, if advised after a complete eye evaluation. It may not get set by child growth, worse, it may even increase.
