Yes, they're all signs of teething, there are other signs as well, like disturbed sleep loss of appetite and red gums, he could also be really restless. You child also seems to be about the average age for starting to teeth as well.
You need to make sure you keep (gently) wiping the drool from your baby because he could really sore, I'd also recommend keeping a bib on him.
Sounds like he's teething then, if he's really bad you should take him to the doctors.
Something you can do to help are (if he's on solids) give him some cold foods like yoghurt, you can massage his gums and give him something hard to chew on (like those baby toys with the liquid filled part - these can be put in the fridge for extra relief)
You may also be able to give him some baby-painkillers, like a paracetamol suspension aimed at babies and if you do NEVER exceed the stated dose. You'd be best to check with the doctor before you do this as well.
He has rusk sticks and he chews on them all day, but we're starting him on solids.
He's been to the doctors about it, but they said it could really be anything, like teething as well. But the doctor said just give him baby nurofen and it should be fine.

They day i truly fell in love fpr the first time. <3
I love you and wouldn't change you for the world. <3
It does sound like teething to me. I know some parents let babies suck on frozen bananas. Also, try some orajel. That stuff works wonders on my 5 month old baby sister who is going through the same thing right now.
Just a girl with an angel above, just a girl with an angel to love. My angel grew wings and she did dare to fly. But I promise my angel, it's only good night but never good-bye. My angel, my angel in heaven above. My angel, my darling, you'll always have my love. Rest in peace, my sweet darling, it's only temporary that we part. My angel, my angel, how you still do steal my heart </3
You can get teething gel its suitable for babies aged 2month + it helps to 'numb' the gums and you can apply it every three hours. Maybe talk to your doctor and ask about teething gel.
Unfortunately, teething gel doesn't work as well as people think. The saliva from the baby washes it away fairly quickly. But, this isn't always the case. So if it works for you, then awesome. Just thought I would point this out.
Just keep cool teething rings around. Try the medicine the doctor gave you. And it can't hurt to try teething gel
Otherwise, just keep patient while he is fussy and remember he is just feeling miserable right now. I know it can be tough dealing with a fussy baby.
Hopefully the nurofen will knock him out. It has codeine in it, which makes you tired.
