E.g. Trainses, carses etc. should we be correcting him or not worry about it at this age?

I wouldn't correct him as such, just say it correctly after him, so he can hear how it should be said. Eventually he'll copy you.

Is he Gollum?

Sorry that was really flippant, I do agree with previous poster, I wouldn't be concerned at this age.

I agree you should just repeat it back to him correctly: 'Where are my trainses?" " Your trains are in the toy box." No need to point out the error.

Ok thanks.

No I don't think he's Gollum, he's certainly never mentioned a 'precious' grin

I teach 6 and 7 year olds, some of whom still do this (to a lesser extent) English is a tricky language that does make much sense so I wouldn't worry
