He seems absolutely normal...in both weight and height. Use WHO/ IAP GROWTH charts to trach his height. In First year baby will grow by 25 cm. At birth length...50 cm, At 1 year .....75 cm. At 8 months..66 cm...is absolutely fine. You can use Anthrocal application also for growth monitoring.
Next Steps
if still feeling he is not growing can show pediatric Endocrinologist or pediatrician
