Inverted Nipples in Children?

My 5 year old daughter appears to have inverted nipples. I don't know much about the subject but other moms told me that having inverted nipples is not a good thing.
My daughter's nipples seem to be that way all the time, they don't react to the weather.
How is a case of Inverted Nipples treated in children?

Is there anything i can do personally to make an inverted nipple turn into a normal one? Is there any way to cure inverted nipples in children?

There is nothing that you need to do about your daughter's breasts.
At puberty her breasts will develop, and it's not until then that it will be clear whether her nipples are inverted or not.

Many babies, both boys and girl, are born with inverted nipples. Inverted nipples result when the tissue underlying the mammary pit (in your unborn baby) does not proliferate as expected and elevate the nipple and areola. Adhesions at the base of the nipple pull the nipple inward.

There's nothing bad about it, even when the time comes and she has to breastfeed. Inverted Nipples are just one of those little differences humans have.
