Mine didn't but I know several who have. Most of the time it closes on it's own. If not they go in a close it surgically.

My son had a valve that didn't close like it was supposed to once he was born. (PDA). He was born at 28.1 weeks. They tried to give him medication to close it, but he ended up having to have surgery. He is now 3 years old and still has 2 small pin holes in his heart, but they are supposed to close on their own, and even if they don't, his cardiologist said it wont effect his life, so she wont do surgery.

My dad was born 2 months early with 3 holes in his heart which they fixed surgically, he passed away from unrelated issues 10 years ago. He would have been 70 this past week.
