I would not worry. Boys develop a little slower than girls, and even if your daughter was doing it at 3 doesn't necessarily mean any other child will.
Riley went to Kindergarten not really knowing much about the alphabet and he hated writing..lol.. but within 6 weeks he was completely caught up with the class. Now, in 1st grade, he's doing great.
If you're truly worried about it, try to incorporate counting in every day life. If he has duckys in the bath, line them up one by one while counting them, then knock them off one by one while counting them. Count his carrots at lunch. Little things like that, and I'm sure you'll be surprised. Speak with his pedi at his 3 year old check up for some more ideas.
I have a 3yo and 5yo son. My 3yo can count and knows ABCs. I recently took him to my local school district's Child Find program to have him evaluated to make sure he was on target. Would you be willing to do something like that or talk to your ped?
