My daughter is 9 months old bow and has only been crawling for a month. Its not even really crawling its like an army crawl but she gets there. I wouldn't worry really if he is able to do the other things. Sounds to me like he is developing just fine. Give him time he will catch on and u will b chasing him in no time. My daughter started in a day. Like one day she would lay there and kick and cry and get in her knees a little and the next day she was gone. Hasn't stopped moving since

I wouldn't worry unless they are having other developmental delays. My daughted is 22mths and is not walking. She started crawling at 16mths. She is just now starting to pull hedself up but can't get her feet turned around right. If your really worried call first steps and they will do an evaluation for therapy.
