Dr bansal is quite correct.
I would add that one should be ever vigilant and suspicious of alcohol or drug use as a cause for changes in an adolescent's demeanor, behavior, social skills, or grades. Also, some diseases may present with withdrawn behavior, such as depression, thyroid disease, and anemia.
