Flat feet in children without any other symptoms, particularly in infants, is often a normal part of development. Typically developing children often have flat feet due to loose joints and their arch is observed to be flexible, which means you can see an arch when the feet are off the ground or when they rise on tip toes. Typically, an arch develops in standing by the age of six, however this is not always the case.

Metatarsus Varus (MTV)
Metatarsus Varus, or otherwise known as Metatarsus Adductus is a common foot condition which affects newborn babies or young children. It presents with the outside border of the foot curving inwards, resulting in a moon-shaped foot position. Often the foot position is flexible and will correct itself in time; however, in some other instances the foot may need stretching, splinting or casting to correct its position.
