Left foot sidewards

Hello, my son is not walking straight and him left feet moving sidewards while he walks. Initially when he was younger I took him to the doctor and he said, as he grows and becomes conscieous, this will be taken care...but I feel there is a need for correction shoes so that he can walk properly. Please suggest

Hi not worried too much. Try to consult a orthopedic for further evaluation. Your son might need a few xrays to be done, to rule out any bone malformations or footarch deformities. Also sometimes he might be avoiding walking straight due to any injury on the inner side. Try to look for it if any. You can consult a orthopedic for further treatment.
