Default 1 day old calf advice

We have a calf that is one day old. And seems really small compared to what we have had in the past. All day today he has just laid around and I haven't seen him nurse at all. Well about noonish his mother brought him up to the fence and that is where he has laid. She comes up moos nudges him then goes on. It's now 1730 and we went out a few minutes ago and checked on him. Of course mom was up there mooing. He stood up for about a minute took a couple steps mom cleaned his umbilical cord. And he laid back down. Should we be concerned? I guess I am more concered about it eating.... Or is this normal?
