keep the consistency of his food thin only, don't keep it thick lumpy. You can also offer your child some finger foods like slices of apple or thin sticks of carrot/cucmber, biscuits, crackers etc. Encourage the child to eat his meals with other family members to encourage him to chew. You can also show him chewing your own food. Once the child starts to chew some foods you can offer him semi solids and more thick consistency of foods.
