I've noticed that my cousin's baby will startle if he's looking down and then looks up and something new is in his line of sight. My mom was holding him today. He was on her hip facing out. I walked up to him with a book I bought him and said his name and held it out. He looked up,saw the book and jumped! I wonder if he has a problem seeing or hearing. Its not like the book was right in his face,it was at least 18 inches away.
He's 8 months old.
I asked a question on here yesterday about him not wanting to go to anyone but his mom or grandma. I wonder if the 2 things are related
I just get this weird feeling about him,like something is just not right.

It sounds more like a sensory integration problem. There are tons of articles on the web. Newborns have lots of reflexes, but an 8 month old would have grown out of most of them.
