First of all that kitten is absolutely adorable :lovestruck:
His eyes remind me of what I've seen in some Persian cats. They tend to go to the outer sides a bit unlike what we see in many Siamese that go towards the inner corners.
My little Cow is crossed eyed a DSH cow cat and I think it makes him look even more adorable and innocent :cloud9:
If i'm not mistaken you're kitten must be a Scottish Fold. Very beautiful, as long as he's healthy and living a good life I wouldn't worry too much about his eyes.

Strabismus is not necessarily crossed eyes. Crossed eyes are Strabismus but Strabismus includes Walleyes, where the eyes look to the outside and other types where one eye looks straight ahead and the other might head off in another direction. I went to school with a girl with this latter. We used to joke she could watch two boys at once. :) Sometimes the condition is only evident when the person tries to focus on something but when relaxed the eyes look normal.

If anything I think your kitten (cutie-pie, sweetie, precious little thing) has walleyes, not crossed eyes. If you were planning to show this kitten then you should contact the breeder. Also ask your Vet but it is sometimes outgrown. That case looks very mild but ask your Vet if it might impair the kitten's life or get worse. I can't see (:)) how it would be severe enough, from what I see now, to be a serious life threatening thing in a pet kitten. In a wild cat, yes, might affect ability to catch prey.

A lot of kittens look like that. Most likely he'll outgrow it. Wait until at least 3 months if not like Longblades said check if that's not anything that could affect the quality of life. I doubt it though. That cutie will be just fine.
