what helped my daughter was putting toys just out of reach and also laying down on the floor facing her a couple feet away and asking her to come to me and wiggling my fingers at her. She started by getting on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth for about 2 weeks and then just started crawling one day.

most babys dont crawl till 9 months of age. and some babys neve crawl they just go straight to walking (some scoot on there butt instead to) just keep giving lots of tummy time and try putting a toy just out o f reach so they try to get to it

8 months is still early my nieces just sat there untill they were 16 months n then they crawled, most doctors would tell u to wait until 1 year, im sure hes fine just let him discover it hiself!

Take him to a pediatrician and get him evaluated - you need to make sure that nothing is medically wrong with him before you try to 'get him' to do anything.
