He's small, but its up to your parents to have him evaluated.

He must be awfully short, or skinny.

He is just small. My nephew is 5 and only weighs 35. He is small built and very active. As long as your brother is healthy he is fine.

If your parents and his pediatrician aren't concerned, you shouldn't worry too much. Many children start out small.

He's fine. He's really not usually underweight if he is on the short side. His yearly well visit will ensure is is growly properly.
