i think it may be normal!
i remember when my 1st was born having a lump right where the ribs joined and OMG did it freak me out! he was only a couple of weeks old and i took him straight to the docs and they told be it was normal, something to do with the where the ribs join..sternum or something?? and ive not had a problem since. but thinking about it i never did notice it iwth any of my other 3.
take her to the docs anyway as its always better to be safe than sorry, but if it is where the ribs meet in the middle then it may just be normal.
really hard trying to remember back 9 1/2 years but im pretty sure it looked worse when he cried xXx
