Autism or Delayed speech. of 2yrs 4 months old

My son is 2 yrs 4 months old...He was quick for catching up other development milestones than speaking...
Now he can speak few words like maa, mummy , car , cow , tata , papa , dada etc...

also tries to say some 2-3 words sentences, but for us its difficult to understand... He makes us understand by pointing his finger or our finger for things he wants...Also he can follow instructions like keep plates in kitchen, get you car, give phone to papa etc...

I am really not able to understand whether he is an autistic child & whom to contact for its detection..

It sounds like he is doing fine as for at this age speaking in sentences with a couple words here and there is normal. A lot of what they say is garbled and hard to understand but if he is point out things to you and following directions it sounds like he is doing well. But if you have concerns and want to evaluate him, take him to the doctor and the doctor can give you places to go for that.
