Some of the type pediatric cardiac problems include:

If the arteries and blood vessels are not formed properly during gestation or are not placed in the position they are supposed to be in.

Due to narrowed arteries, the heart has to work extra to pump out the blood which in turn can enlarge the heart and thicken the heart muscles.
Hole in the heart
The hole in the heart may form between the walls of the chambers of the heart and also the arteries or the major blood vessels. Enough oxygenated blood does not reach the body causing blue skin and many other issues.
