Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me: How long has he been like this?How old is he?Any history or injury or trauma? Any recent access to chews or did he chew anything?Does he look like his muscles are shrinking around his jaw or the top of his head?
