since your child is very young,at the moment try to stop his habit completely as teeth malalignment is due to his habit so your first goal will be to stop his habit .
Secondly, try to visit orthodontist if you want to treat it at this stage.He/She will give you some appliances which will help him to stop his habit and correct his malalignment.
I would suggest you to frst stop his habit as he is too young to cooperate with appliances and then at the age of 6 yrs you can visit any orthodontist.but if you are unable to stop his habit then for his habit cessassion you need to visit the doctr so that they can give appliance to stop it.
If you had anyother question please feel free to ask.

Hello, Good news is that these are his milk teeth so no need to worry about their alignment atm. Just focus on breaking this habit of thumb sucking, so that he doesn’t do it when he has permanent teeth. To break the habit you can counsel him first. If he doesn’t listen, then take him to a dentist and get a habit breaking appliance fixed in his mouth. That will stop the thumb sucking habit completely. If you have any more questions, feel free to consult me on the Marham app

just make sure that his habit of thumb sucking is discounted, rest nothing to worry for teeth at the moment, but consult a Psychiatrist if your child has some mental or anxiety issues and if he goes to school. then ask his teachers abt it and comfort your child
