Usually by 2 years 8 months children start speaking two word sentences From what you are saying it looks like your child has difficulty in expression of speech as he is able to comprehend or understand Having said that check out if he is seeing lot of mobile or TV and if in your house background TV is switched on continuously even if the child is not seeing All these are reasons why there could be a delay Try spending time with him and allow him to mix with children of his age group as schools are yet to open If no improvement within a month better to see a doctor for assessment as it is essential that we help home early
