This is normal.: Although 12 months is the average age for a child to start walking, it is still normal to begin walking as late as 18 months (or later if he was premature). You can just make sure that he spends enough time out of high chairs/walkers/car seats and has enough "floor time, " in a safe environment. Is he pulling himself up to stand? And/or "cruising?".

Walking: Can your son sit unsupported? Does he crawl? Does he pull himself up and cruise along furniture? Each of these are milestones that lead to walking. Be patient, make sure that your son has plenty of opportunity to safely cruise around. It takes hours of practice so allowing for them to move around and explore their environment is important.

Baby Development: If he was walking at 13 months that would be very early and unusual. He is normal. I would advise you take a moment with your pediatric manual so that you can find out the norms of a child's development and what are the norms.
