When Should You Be Concerned About Your Baby's Soft Spot?
You should keep a close watch on the appearance of your baby’s soft spot. The normal appearance is firm to the touch with a slight depression. If the fontanel looks very depressed, it may be a sign that your baby is dehydrated. If it is bulging, it may be a cause for concern if your baby has bumped his head, has been having fever and/or is extremely lethargic. Contact your pediatrician immediately in both cases.
