I am very concerned as his BMI is only 13.5. We have talked to our family Doctor so many times but he says just give him to eat what he wants. The problem is he never ask for anything even JUNK FOOD ! Any Help.

I would recommend that you seek a second opinion from another doctor and find a dietitian who specializes in childhood nutrition.  It is definitely a concern for his BMI to be at this level, but I really think that you need to work with someone who can assess the situation and provide regular follow-up.
