I would suggest that you try giving him a few drops of gas x(ask your PED, he may have another brand he prefers) He may have colic......try bouncing him or placing him on top of a dryer(in his car seat, with you close by) and turning it on.....the gentle rocking is very soothing. Worked great for my son!
If you think it is just because he wants to be held....your LO may not have fully established the ability to self regulate. There are techniques that you can use. When he starts crying, take his hands and place them on his chest....sometimes this will help him to soothe himself.
