It looks like he may have a upper lip attachment was he tounge tied stall? My son was and still had latching problems and it wasn't untill his teeth came in did we realise his upper lip attachment does he have trouble latching or drinking? He may outgrow it or it may cause a diastima when he is older and may need braces. You can always ask your dentist if they feel it should be cliped. I'm waiting untill Evans a little older to see if it is acctualy going to interfier or if he will need it cliped.

If you're referring to the skin attaching the lip to the gums that is not "normal" but not harmful either, it's called a lip tie and makes it harder to bf and sometimes to eat or delays speach but overall is not usually severe enough to worry about, best diagnosed by a doctor or dentist though

Two to three years old. But in this case I would proly go at one or not sooner I took Evan at one year but then again I'm a DA lol so it was easy for me I just took him to work lol but there isn't much they can do now but make the sugestion on to clip or not and to get the child comfortable with dentist if anything at your next cleaning just take him with and ask them to take a look. Because some insurances won't cover a child too young unless an emergancy not sure what your situation is lol

Here it's two but I've known them to take newborns specifically for this reason and for tongue tied to lazer clip it (much better than at a hospital!) if your insurance allows I would make an appr and take him in to see what they think. My sons is still tied at 6 and he's made it work just fine so it's not always something that HAS to be fixed, but definitely good to check and make sure.

I just noticed that both DS and I are lip tied. It's never caused us any problems. Hell I didn't even notice till today. I looked at this thread and then checked my own mouth haha.
