It's hard to say without seeing pictures to see for ourselves just how upright they are, but more than likely he will be more prone to lameness and arthritis. On top of that, horses with upright pasterns are often rough to ride as well.
As for whether he will grow out of it or not, I can't say. I don't have enough experience with babies and the way that they grow. I do know that my guy was extremely upright as a baby, but the more he grew, the more angle he got and now at almost 2, he has very nicely angled pasterns.
