Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. However, children can only speak clearly when they are 7 years old. Before that, it is natural that children cannot arrange their sentences clearly, cannot pronounce words correctly, are still reversed in speaking and so forth. What is clear, by the age of 4 years he should already have a lot of vocabulary, can make simple sentences, can understand commands and questions, and recognize objects around him.
So for now, you don't need to worry because your child is still far from the age range where he should be able to speak clearly. Meanwhile, you can help him speak more clearly by asking him to repeat words that sound unclear, encourage children to play something that is able to practice the movements of his mouth such as blowing a trumpet and blowing bubbles in soapy water, make it a habit for children to drink with a straw, and ask the child to repeat his request is clear before you obey him.
If you are still worried, because we do not observe your child's speech directly, it is okay to check with your pediatrician to check directly about his condition. Thus, misunderstandings can be avoided and the handling can be more appropriate. So, hopefully answering your question.
