    He has a flat head.

    The baby always lay on his back. He has a flat head.
    The baby always lay on his back. His head became flat.
    The baby always lay on his back. His back head is flat now.

    Are they grammatically correct?

    Re: He has a flat head.

    None of them is perfectly natural. "The back of his head is now flat."

    Also, I prefer "the baby was always laid on his back", because at least in his first months, the baby had no control over how he laid.
