There is very thin boundary between normal non fluency and stammering. Most of the time stammering start from the age 2-5 years. If history of stammering is more than 6 months than only we can say confidently it is stammering only. Talk to the child slowly and don't give any negative comments about his speech. Consultant Speech Languages Pathologist (SLP) for detail evaluation.
I suggest you to consult child psychologist too. It must be due to some kind of anxiety or depression which requires intervention now rather than it becomes a permanent problem.
