Belly Button Sealing

This is my other baby friend from Dodi who liked me instantly. His nickname is Nana (meaning 'Chief'). You may have noticed the extreme outty of a belly button. It was explained to me that sometimes when babies' are born, they do not clamp/seal off the belly button well and air gets inside it causes this extreme protrusion. They told me that is it not fixable and the child will grown up to an adult and still have this. Knowing how advanced medicine is, I'm certain there is some way to fix it but probably not something very available (or so necessary) to those in small villages in Africa. I wondered if something so superficial could impair one's ability to reach a job level of high regard?
