Mostly as you said if he can listen there should not be major problems.I hope he is speaking something like single words.The reason for not taking may hereditary,means somebody in family was also late.otherwise tongue tie means tongue tied at the base could also be the reason.Get him examined by your family doctor and then by pediatrician to confirm the exact cause.
