Is your brother mentally challenged? Does he go to school? Other than the few words he can't pronounce correctly, can he speak comprehensibly?
If he is not mentally challenged, goes to school and is at the level where he is supposed to be and speaks without other problems, there is no need to worry.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.
