A girl was holding my baby and said he acted as if he was teething... he is a little bit congested and has his moment of being really cranky and nothing makes him happy???

Sorry, I didn't realize i was saying 'she' the whole time! No offense to your son!

probably, my baby did just the dame and if you want to be sure, you can wash your hands thoroughly (you should also have short nails for this) and rub her gums. Regardless if you feel a tooth in there or not, if she starts chewing on it that means the counter pressure is helping and she really is teething. This is also really helpful because since there's really no good chew toy for such a tiny baby anyways.
