Hi,

He might be developing a condition called cerebral palsy, but for more clear picture, I need to get more details like details of pregnancy, delivery and his development. Plus, reports of MRI also. Bone marrow transplantation is unlikely to help, but regular physiotherapy, early stimulation and intervention measures will help a lot. Kindly consult a pediatric neurologist for detailed evaluation.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
