    Well, if one side isn't developing at all, I would see a doctor. Probably nothing to worry about, but better safe than sorry. If one side just isn't as large as the other, that's normal. My sister had that. She still has one breast that's larger than the other. Most women do, it's just not noticeable in some cases. I actually have one that is slightly larger than the other, and I have less armpit hair on that side too. I thought it was possibly a pcos symptom, since I do have pcos, but the doctor told me that it's pretty common and not a symptom of anything, just the way your body develops. My son has less pit hair on one side too. Just keep an eye on it for a couple of months and see what happens. :)

    I agree with this.

    This says it is normal, but that if it goes on longer than six months, you should talk to her doctor.

    My 10 yr old girl and 14 yr old biy both had this so I freaked out and took them in. The Dr said that it is normal. But I wiuld keep an eye in it.

    Keep an eye out as the other ladies said and if she doesn't start developing on that side get her checked out.
