Child has bad behavior, hits randomly, is fussy eater but seems to be good and bright in school. Autism signs?

I m very worried about my five year old brother, he as very bad behaviour problems such as he will randomly walk up to you and headbutt, punch, kick you for no reason at all and when he does he doesn t really feel any pain from it, he also is a fussy eater to the point where he will starve himself :( he also has problems speaking to people outside the family he just grunts! However at school he s good as gold and a very bright boy. One of the other parents suggested he might have some sort of autisum but were unsure, please help I have 11 month old twins and he is not safe round them :(

Pediatrician 's  Response
I appreciate your concern,
Hyperactive behavior is sometimes observed in preschool children.but relax there is no underlying abnormality as you said he is very good in studies,
I advise you to ignore his behavior,be patient to him,try to involve him in some motivational activities .
as you said you are having younger twins as well,so his behavior could be a part of sibling rivalry as well.
So all he need is love,care and attention.
Your brother will be fine.
God bless
