Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

A gap while not stretching can be a sign of downs but is not always. Since he has gap on stretching only and no other features so nothing much to worry about. Mention his doctor on next visit for examination and further reassurance.

Hope this helps.
