My son is 11month with a head circumfence of 49 inches.Please tell me if this measeure ment is ok for his age.
I believe you must have misheard the number, 49 inches is over 4 feet in circumference, which would not be possible. If you have further questions, please discuss them with your son's primary care provider who probably did the measurement in clinic.
