My firstborn only started walking at 15 months and my cousin at 18 months. Let your LO develop at his pace. It should only become a concern at 18 months if he still doesn't walk. There is also old wives tale that state that the child will enjoy good life if he walks later rather than earlier .

Let lo grow at his own pace. Different babies develop at their own pace. It is okay as long as baby is still crawling and cruising. I would not worry about it. If you are still unsure, best to bring it up to your PD during your next visit.
