He'll get there. There's an average time babies start to do things, not a set time. And if he was a preemie then, yes he can be delayed in things. Give him time.

Quoting A Chelsie to Remember.:" My LO is four months old and barely uses his hands. He always wants to keep them curled up into a fist, ... [snip!] ... doing exercises with him everyday to get him to strengthen up his hands and arms. Is there anything else i can do to help him?"Have you spoke to your pedi about it?

yes, he is the one who mentioned it to me and said to try different exercises. his legs are so strong, he can scoot himself with them and not do anything with his hands. but the pedi said its from being so early.
