Not diarrhoea but loads of firm poo and on average about 4 times per day - is this ok?

If he's always like this, gets no tummy pain and is putting on weight then I wouldn't worry. It's just how his body works. If he's not putting on weight/has tummy pain then I'd take him to the GP.

My DD used to do 3 full sized poos straight after each other. It was because she has an extra bit and bend in her bowel, so more poo formed in her bowel IYSWIM. She grew out of it as she got taller and her bowel had more room to stretch out. Sorry if TMI grin
