BUT you need to know the proper breathing exercising or it won't help at all, so a therapist who is a professional will know the proper techniques to teach you and your son.

I wouldn't WORRY per say, but I would get him into speach therapy to help him learn to breath properly while he is talking. It will help him concentrate on how he is pronouncing his words, help him breath them out properly, and help stop stuttering. It will take a while, and he may be in therapy long term if it is a true stutter. But the sooner you start, the better off he will be.

don't pay too much attention to it, remind him to relax... my sister's son went through a stuttering phase for a few months, maybe almost a year, but she kept "showing him off" he eventually grew out of it. but most importantly help him relax, do breathing exercises to help him relax

is your child exposed to a different language? Try not to worry in front of your child, but you can ask the pediatrician for a therapist. They have tons of experience and I've seen children getting better after a few sessions
