See your GP or paediatrician first. It's still within the bounds of 'normal' for a child not to speak at this age. My older girl only spoke her first recognisable word just before her 2nd birthday, but went on to progress very fast after that. Is his hearing normal (does he turn to your voice, look around to check out noises behind him etc)? If there are no problems with hearing, it could be that he will start soon, but is just one of the later speakers.

His hearing is normal and responds to our voices depending on his mood.. But he doesn't point to the things we say or his body parts. He is also shy outside and will hide whenever his teacher try to sing and dance.. Wonder if he is autism too but gp say he is too young to be diagnose w autism

Yes, he's too young to be diagnosed. He could just be an introvert. Just keep talking to him and encourage him to interact with you as much as possible.
