Pot belly 9 year old should I be worried

Hi I hope you don’t mind me posting. My daughter is 9, nearly 10. She has a perfect bmi and is not overweight. However she does have a tummy, it reminds me a little of how toddlers tummy’s are only a bit bigger. She has always had a tummy but it seems to have got bigger, I thought at approaching 10 it would have gone. We get plenty of exercise and eat healthy. I am just wondering if anyone experienced similar? I wasn’t too concerned and was going to continue exercise and healthy eating however I googled and read a forum where someone mentioned cancer and this has got me so worried 😢
