All baby turtles tend to grow at their own pace. I have had my baby turtle since he was a hatchling(about the size of a quarter)he is almost 4 inches in shell length now. With patience, proper care, and a little time your turtle will eventually grow.
Good luck:D

Aside from genetics, growth is also affected by environmental conditions such as warmth and diet. You want your turtle to have slow, steady growth and not grow too fast (damages kidneys and may lead to shell deformities). If your turtles are healthy and you\'ve only had them a month, I wouldn\'t worry about not seeing a lot of growth (as was said, you don\'t want that).
