    At 13 weeks that would make him square in the 9th percentile on that chart, but if you are measuring him as a 17 week-old it looks like he is in the 2nd percentile (all according to the chart). This means that 91 out of 100 13-week-old babies are larger than him, and 98 out of 100 17-week-old babies are larger than him.
