Hello lybrate-user, yes it is worth worry that your child is not gaining weight and height. You should go for pediatric check up and moniter your child on groeth chart. There are many causes of it like hypothyroidism, familial short strature, pitutary linked problem etc. All will be cleared once you got regarding test done. Observe mental ansd social development and his learning and understanding skills.
