HbE sickle cell varies greatly in outcomes. For some, transfusions are needed and for others, no blood is required. Even without the need for transfusion, when patients have lower than normal Hb levels, there can be slower growth and bone growth can also be affected. A good nutritious diet is essential. Make sure the child develops a taste for fresh fruit and vegetables.

If the Hb maintains between 8-9, transfusions aren't usually started. Even many thal minor children have this problem of slow weight gain when young. Find healthy foods the child likes. Try things like smoothies you can make in a blender using fruits and vegetables. You can find many smoothie recipes online. Wheatgrass might also help.

Is that his ferritin level?

Iron loading will happen with an Hb below 9. Over time, it can even require chelation drugs to remove. Iron supplements should not be taken. They only add to the iron load.
