In brief: No
Your baby needs to be seen by your pediatrician.
Some babies have torticollis: a condition where the neck muscle is a little short or tense. Physical therapy helps this a lot. It is hard to tell without seeing the baby, so please make an appointment.

In brief: No
It is not normal for your child to cry whenever they move their neck.
They should be examined immediately to rule out a serious condition, such as meningitis.
