My son is 22 months old and still his frontanelle is open. Is it gud or bad for him?

The fontanelle's are used to bring the baby out a the time of delivery. These allows the head bones to flex and come out of tyhe uterus easily. While the posterior and lateral fontanels are closed by about six months after birth, the anterior fontanels is not completely closed until about the middle of the second year. Some times it is seen to take time period for more than two years in few cases. If your baby's fontanels is closing gradually or you observe decrease in the size you need not worry. But if it is of the same size as it was at birth time, this may need an opinion of a paediatrician. Take care.
