Ricage growing Unevenly

My son, aged 14, has an extremely lopsided ribcage - the right hand side is much more pronounced and sticks up about 2inches - it also appears to be very flexible. What concerns me is the fact that it is extremely uncomfortable for him to lie down on his tummy as this puts pressure on his chest. Any ideas as to what the problem is - my older brother has something similar but not nearly as pronounced
