In brief: Yes

Toe walking is a normal stage in some toddlers and is common off & on to the age of 3.
Most do if for a while & progress to regular teal toe walking over time.

If he is 100% toe-walking now, it may be wise to see your pediatrician for comprehensive developmental, neurological & physical exams for diagnosis & treatment. Assessment & physical therapy by an early intervention program can also help, if needed.
