Separation anxiety???

My son is almost 7months. He cries every time I put him down. If I give him to daddy he’s okay but if I leave the room he starts screaming like he thinks I’m leaving him. How long does this usually last?

He’s just getting over being sick and he is teething, I understand he may need me for comfort. Shouldn’t he be learning to play on his own around now?
