YES!: He should have a full work up by your pediatrician and should also be seen by your local ENT for an ear exam and hearing test. I would get this checked asap.

Yes: Yes, the average child should speak with a few hundred words and speak in sentences at this point. While some newer studies suggest that many kids with good speech comprehension but poor expression still do well in the long run, this needs a further work up. A child in this scenario should have a full hearing screen and a speech therapy evaluation and work up.
