Hi Kerrie, sorry to hear this and that you are so worried. Does he pick up toys at all? Or do other things like babbling? I know nothing about what constitutes a delay sorry.
My 9 month old doesn't roll (absolutely no interest in moving) and can't sit unsupported at all, we are outside the uk and while they are keeping an eye on him we haven't been referred anywhere yet. The HV was saying he might be developing other skills at the moment, for example he 'chats' loads.
Have to admit I am still worried though as at the same age his sister was crawling everywhere and his cousin has a genetic condition that affects development.

Hope you get some answers soon x
