    Growth pattern

    Hello, my son will be 15 in just over a month. He has always been an undersized kid. We visit the doctor fairly regularly and he has not recommended any further investigation. He also visits a cardiologist because he has Pulmonary Stenosis which is a malformation of the pulmonary heart valve. We have been told his issue is minor but they will continue to monitor him to see if surgery may be required down the road. He is 5'2" and weighs about 100 pounds. He is a jiu jitsu athlete and trains hard at least 2 hours a day, 6 days a week.

    Our last trip to the cardiologist she mentioned that if in 6 months he hasn't grown much we should speak to the doctor about further testing. I am 5'10' and my wife is 5'8'. What possible reasons could there be for his shorter stature?

    Thank you.

    I should also mention his 18 year old brother is 6 feet tall.
