Is head crawling in 10.5 months old infant normal? he is also doing weird hand movement (twirling his right hand).

Concerned : Using the head to crawl is unusual, especially when combined with abnormal head movements. An evaluation of motor strength and unusual muscular tone is warranted. A general pediatrician should be able to perform the initial exam and determine if further work up or referral is necessary.
