Boys tend to have one track minds so if your son is involved in something he may not be capable of hearing you he's just to focused. Something you might try is actually going up to him and putting your hand on his shoulder when you say his name it should get him to look at you and that will help him learn that when his name is said he should look up. Another is to make it a game every so often say his name in your happiest voice and when he looks at you smile real big and just say "Hi" that's something I used to help teach my kids their name. Have you had his hearing checked?
