I was very excited when started to read this thread because surely humanity needs more prodigies, however I couldn't help but roll my eyes when watching the first video... Writing his calculations on a window? That's so "A Beautiful Mind" and is without a doubt just pure show, probably made by his parents. There's no practicity at all in doing that unless you just want to show off. Later on I got to read the note posted by SJE98 and something doesn't seem right...
Either this kid is an invention by his parents or he's really interested in science but he's not at the level of a genius as the media and his parents are claiming.
Without extremely close, and protracted study of his interpersonal communication capacity, his learning capability, his level of concentration and other various factors, claiming to be suspicious of this child, or any facet of his presentation is utterly without informed basis.
