My daughter will be 6 months on the 25th of May and can't sit on her own. She can sit propped up but not alone... I am not worried I am sure she will do it when she is ready.. The only pain is that she wants to sit all the time but can't :-))

On average sitting up is around 6 months and crawling around 7/8 months. However, all kids do all things at their own pace and how early or late they do something is not an indicator of how they will function later in life or how intelligent they are. Many kids also never crawl and go straight to walking (or they find their own crawling style like the commando style crawling). So just let him develop at his own pace. He'll get there soon enough.

Depends on the child. Most parents prop their children into sitting position round 4 to 5 months. I left my child's development to him, he sat up by himself at around 7 months, and crawled like a spider at about 15 months, walked at 18 months. He is a really good kid, now 16 years old. No trouble with him, he is a well balanced young man.
