Generally, the percentile curve of the boy's weight for age is used by the pediatrician to check the evolution of the boy's weight as he grows up, and more importantly, if the boy maintains weight throughout the same percentile. For example, a boy who is born with a birth weight of 50 should remain in the 50 th percentile while growing older.
