He is a regular kid but “extra small.”

Matthew Riddle III is seven months old, but when strangers meet him for the first time, they assume he’s a newborn.

“They think that he was just born. We get, ’Was he just born 5 minutes ago?’ Or, ’Was he preemie?’ Or, ’Why is he so small?’” said Jenevieve Cook, Matthew’s mother.
