In brief: Late
Studies have shown that most kids follow a pattern of advancing skills regarding use of various muscle.
There is a tremendous range of time, so a child may walk as early as 7-8 mos and as late as 18-20 mos and still be in the "normal" range. When these advancements are delayed, longer than the expected latest normal time, we worry about problems.

In brief: Each developmental
stream - cognition, communication, social, fine motor & gross motor- has a range of ages in months at which typically-developing infants achieve specific skills.
An infant who does not attain those skills by the age at which 90% of infants demonstrate them has a delay in that stream. Fine motor = use of muscles of the upper trunk, arms & hands; Gross Motor = use of muscles of pelvis,legs, feet
