Really snotty and unusually a bit grumpy & fussy, would think he's feeling grotty. 5.5mo

If you think he's in pain, then give him the calpol - it won't do anything about the snot, but might make it more bearable. I tend to take paracetamol if I fel grotty from a cold or anything, not specifically for a temp.

Hi puppster, dd (7.5m) is in the same situation. No temp but full of a cold and obviously really fed up. Was hesitant to give calpol but she has had a small dose and is much more happy now. Is he teething?
