Help with the f sound. Instead of fork he will say mork. Other letters he messes up too. . Is this normal?

My DD is 2 and 'fork' always sounds like 'f*ck'.

Yes, it's normal. There are age ranges where certain sounds become intelligible. He'll figure it out. Don't call attention to it, just repeat it correctly so he can hear it.

Absolutely. My 2 yr old is in speech and his speech person said that if he says tru for truck every single time that they consider it a word and he will develop the rest later.

Perfectly normal. Just repeat the word with the correct pronounciation to them. They will get it! Some letters are harder than others!

My DS is 26 months. He speaks pretty clearly but seems to have problems with consonent blends. Well, he loves blueberries but can't pronounce the "bl". So we'll be at the grocery store and he will profess his love of blueberries but it comes out sounding like boobies. It's hilarious.

My daughter finally started saying fork and she's the same age, totally normal. Just keep repeating the right word and helping him out he'll get it. If you get concerned with it ask the doctor.

Very appropriate for his age. Don't correct him. As long as he hears you say it the right way he will eventually get it. If he says "I have a mork" you say "I see your fork."
Don't draw attention to his mispronunciation.
