Is a child born at 20 SA is already able to make sounds?

I was woundering if a child born before terms is already able to cry when we take it out of his mother? If not, at what age would it be possible.

Thank you and sorry for the strange question

    Do you mean it is born at 20 weeks gestation? In any case, yes little premmie babies can cry. Obviously they are very frail, and their lungs are under-developed, so their cry is weak, but yes they cry.
