In brief: No
Babies normally start to smile at 2 months old.
A 7 month old who does not smile is at risk for developmental issues.

In brief: No
Almost all babies will have smiled responsively by 3 months of age.
If your 7-month-old is not smiling, this suggests a delay in social development and you should consult your doctor right away for further assessment.
