Doctor :   so he used to respond to noise or sounds ?
Doctor :   does he respond by moving his head towards music ?
User :   that i havent tried yet
Doctor :   u can try it now ?
User :   but when we try to speak to him, he looks at us. But when he is looking somehwere else, and try to call him, he doest turn towards us
