In many cases, a flat spot on a baby's head will round out on its own around 6 months of age, as he starts crawling and sitting up.  But to be safe, if you see a flattening of your baby's head at any time, don't wait – talk with his doctor immediately.   If you do need to take steps to correct the condition, the younger your baby is, the easier it will be.
