My four year old did this when he was three also didn't talk or imitate words but he did what we asked and so on. He will eventually grow out of it some kids just don't feel the need to talk and just don't which worries a parent that if they will ver speak. If he makes sounds and when he cries he makes a sound just don't worry about it. He will talk on his own time and doesn't need a doctor to examine him. Again all kids grow at their own rate and all develop differently. He will start talking on his own terms. My son is an amazing speaker even though he didn't talk at all till he was almost fourish. Just talk to him and accept that he doesn't want to talk yet and just encourage him instead of forcing him to talk. If you really want to seek more help go to a speech therapist and they will give you a handle on it to jump start his speech. Just don't stress over it.
