Being 9 months old, he still cannot communicate to you what is going through his head. If you have fulfilled his basic needs, such as feeding him (or trying to), making sure his diaper is clean, and laying him down, you have done everything you need to do. He might just be tired but doesn't want to go to sleep. You can try cuddling with him and soothing him to make him feel better. In my experience with my daughter if I have tried all of that and nothing works, I would just lay her down and let her soothe herself to sleep. Sometimes that's all you can really do. Eventually, they will learn to self sooth themselves.
