Toungue tie

My son is 9 months old and he has a tongue tie. My worry is what is the correct time of its treatment or we should wait to find out if it's required or not. Please suggest.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Is he facing any difficulties because of it?
Most commonly feeding and speech difficulties are encountered.

You can take him to a general surgeon or a pediatric surgeon and they will examine your child and suggest you further.
Sometimes waiting is required and the condition improves and sometimes a minor surgical procedure is required. 
Best regards.
