He is adorable, good to hear he is gaining weight! He doesn't look like he has hydro... just a round head like a lot of chis do! But of corse it is something to bring up with the vet just to be sure and to ease your mind. Vets will do x-rays on request, but if he isn't showing any signs the stress of one might not be worth it.

I think that his coloring is giving the optical illusion that his head is larger.
He is AD O R A B L E! He kind of reminds me of Eddie from the old black and white tv show Adaams Family.

He will "grow into" his head when the rest of his body fills out. Enjoy! He is a sweetie!!

You know how I see things? Never take anything as definite after simply hearing
it a couple of times, do your own research. There will always be a sea of
opinions in our world, and only a percentage of them are facts. I'm one who
loves to share my opinions too, but I often give a warning to take what I say
with a grain of salt, because even if I am certain about something and will stand
my ground, it does not necessarily make me right. Besides, what might be
correct for one, is wrong for another. So read things lightly and if you are
passionate about a subject, or truly concerned, do your research and make your
own decisions on what to do. Your puppy looks adorable and healthy, but a
picture is no match for a proper diagnosis, I'm not a vet, but to me he looks ok,
don't take my word for it though, speak with your vet.

You did say that the breeder had experience and would not have let him go if he had signs of hydro. The vets know the signs too. It would affect him neurologically if he had this really by now. I have a very reserved dog who was the shyest pup and one of the smallest of a litter of 7. Some pups just have a certain temperment. My dog is almost 5 years old and is still what I would consider a shy dog. Mine also has the overshot jaw, and at different times his head looked a bit 'off" to me. If he is coordinated, moves around well and shows normal puppy responses to things you should be happy. He really is adorable !!!
