I have 5 spruce trees planted 1 1/2 yrs ago. 1 of them is smaller and now has about 10 green pine cones growing on it. Is it sick?

I don't think your spruce is sick. Cone development is normal for spruces and it may be that your tree spent it's energy producing cones instead of growing this year. I'd just continue to give it good care and eventually it will catch up in size to the others.
