General & Family Physician Dr. A K M Wasim Rahman's  Response
Self-muttering may be an early sign of psychosis. So keep him in close observation and look for any other behavioral abnormality. Try to talk to him about his feelings. You may convince him to go to a psychiatrist just for a routine check up.
best of luck.
