In brief: Delayed

Laryngomalacia is not by itself a cause of any speech or other developmental delay.
It is a problem with the stiffness of the upper windpipe not how the vocal cords work. Fourteen months is at the far end of the normal range for walking. He should be making recognizable sounds & use a few words. Your doc can refer you to your local Early Childhood contractor to have him screened for delays.
