An umbilical (belly button) hernia should definitely be monitored and ideally surgically repaired. You don't say how old your kitten is now, but likely if the hernia were going to close up, it would have by now. In general the hernia is just a little (or big) hole in the abdominal wall. The worry is that something important like a loop of intestine could get trapped in there and cause a serious problem. Because your veterinarian has examined it, I would talk to him or her further regarding their recommendations. It may not cause any problems down the road but if you want to be absolutely safe you should have it repaired.
