Could it be his elbow? A pulled elbow in young kids is really common. They are also really bad at localizing pain.

They can get pulled elbows if you hold them up by the arms

I would get him checked out.
When ds fractured his wrist it really didn't show except he occasionally chose to do something with his other hand when he wouldn't normally. Wasn't even noticeably swelled or anything.
I took him to A&E a week later when he did something and I saw him wince. He hadn't complained in all that time-and as an active 8yo was doing all sorts of things-one friend told me her ds was doing monkey bars without apparently being a problem when he'd fractured his wrist.
