I would definitely ask for a referral to a developmental ped to see what s/he thinks.
IMO it is always better to be safe then sorry. I want to know about issues as early as possible ya know?
My son at 9 months was a fabulous sitter. He just started rolling tummy to back at 8 months and didn't go back to tummy until the day before he turned 10 months. He didn't seem interested in being mobile at ALL. I called EI but he didn't qualify for services. And sure enough at 10.5 months he was scooting (never did cross crawl, does it now when he's playing around), going up stairs, pulling up and cruising. All in 2 weeks.
He did start an inchworm-y type thing at 9 months, IIRC.
If you're worried, call EI for an eval. Won't cost and certainly won't hurt. But I doubt there's anything wrong.
Unless you have other reasons to worry about his development, just wait and see how it goes. It still sounds within the "normal" range to me.
Here is a link that has all the coodinators by state:
I would absolutely contact someone. It can't hurt and if there is an issue, can only help.
Good luck and hopefully it is worry for nothing.

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
My DS didn't crawl until 10 1/2 months, walked at 13 months. My pedi was never concerned.
Each child IS different. My DS was much more concerned with his cognitive stuff-he said his first words at 5 months for example. He has always been ahead of the curve with the cognitive stuff and just a tich behind on the physical.

I guess this will be the crucial month. All of the sources I read say that "normal" babies crawl between 7-10 months. Most of the babies who never "crawl" do, however, find some way of being mobile, be it squirming, rolling, or scooting. What worries me is that DS has never once tried to actually move from one place to another.
I kind of think that "milestones" are evil -- yes, it's good to know of them and good to be able to address delays early on if they exist, yadda yadda yadda, but really the "normal" range is so wide and knowing what our babies "should" be doing at x months can cause a lot of unnecessary stress.
Just wanted to let you know I'm another non-crawler. Just got up and walked at some point, not sure what age. But imho I turned out pretty well. Ivy League grad and gainfully employed, can't complain!
