if a child is funtionable around certain people then i shouldn't worry about autism right????

haven ... re. sweating, my DS sweats a lot when he is asleep ... I don't think it is anything to worry about.
Re. crowds ... my ds is not autistic and he has always been uncomfortable and nervous in crowds ... he is just sensitive ... I don't know what your other worries are but if it is just nervousness in crowds I don't think that is too much to worry about ...
How old is your ds?

I think with just the details you have given it so hard to tell!!!!

I weird out around crowds sometimes haven, have done since I was a teenager (sometimes I don't, but I'm never at my most comfortable). The kind of crowds where people invade your personal space (busy shopping centres, raves, festivals) are my idea of a nightmare. I think its just a comfort issue and totally NT

Haven, I work with autistic teenagers sometimes and have a checklist for diagnosis. It is only a guide, not a definite diagnosis. I could post it tomorrow if you like (it is at work). Alternatively you could probably find a book at the library that will give you similar information. All mothers have worries, he is probably fine though.

As BH says, it's impossible to tell from just what is in your post tbh. I think a lot of people find crowds difficult to deal with. I know that I tend to avoid them wherever possible, even if my ds'es aren't with me.

I don't know anything about the sweating though. Sorry.
