I wouldn't take him to see a doctor at all unless one of those symptoms got sharply worse (especially the headache and fever).

DS (2) was like that for a while last year. He has a history of chest infections but even so when I took him to the doctor, they were not inclined to do anything without a real fever.

That's higher than I would call a low grade fever, Janitor. In that case I might well ring NHS direct for advice.
Apologies, I thought you were one of these people sticking he ear-thermometer in and consistently getting 0.5-1 degrees above normal despite Calpol (which would indeed send many into an unnecessary flap).
How old is he?

How's it going?
