Question about autism

I have a grandson that is 17 and for sometime I have seen and felt he has symptoms of some form of autism. He has a hard time with eye contact and does have times of uncontrollable anger. Loud noises and some noises in general seem to bother him a lot. When he was young he would line up toys in a straight line which is something I have read in the past. When not aware of anyone looking he will have odd movements. Hard to really explain.
