This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Welcome to TeX.sx! It's usually best to compose a minimal working example (MWE) In your case, it would have been helpful to know which theorem package you're using- amsthm, ntheorem, other? – cmhughes Jan 25 '13 at 17:49

There are various ways to do this, but all involve loading an additional package, as the default format of theorems in LaTeX is quite rigid.

The easiest way is to add to your preamble


Alternatively, the ntheorem package provides the change theoremstyle, so declaring


will do.

You may want to look at the thmtools package for other customizations of your theorem-like environments.
