He may need speech therapy. My son was the same way and after being evaluated, started speech therapy when he was 2 and is now 6 and still in therapy.

See your pediatrician for an evaluation.

I agree with the PP. Talk to your pedi or your local school district to see what kind of evaluations they have. One son started speech therapy at 3 and at 8 he is still receiving services.
