hello Adri, that is too little information for me to tell you whether or not it is autism. the symptoms you mention could fall under many different diagnoses. have you checked the article on this site on autism? i have included a reasonable checklist there, that will def give you more clarity. if he isnt talking i suggest you convince his parents to take him for an assessment with a psychologist asap.
