Sometimes it just can be due to the fact that children takes time to respond to the new environment. Give him sometime to adjust. If still not improving then you go and consult a psychologist who may refer you to a child psychiatrist later on. Some children can show signs of learning disability at an early age. Visit a psychologist first before anything. Let them asses. There’s no need to worry.
