In brief: Need more info

Is there a particular issue you are worred about? Many kids without behavioral problems will do repetitive actions or follow patters.
Within certain limits this is fine, but if it begins limiting their growth and development you should see a child-care specialist to discuss further.

Thank you for your note. This likely needs evaluation by your local developmental specialist. You can find one by asking your pediatrician or contacting your closest children's hospital

In brief: Kids...

Kids do very peculiar and even particular things - this can be completely normal behavior. I assume you are concerned about one of the autism spectrum disorders.
.. There are screening questionnaires available which your pediatrician can utilize. Please speak with them about any of your concerns.
