Poor love. Make sure he's just lightly covered. You know the drill

seems so long since he's slept all day, he does look comfortable just hot

Don't wake then. Sometimes they just need to sleep. I hope he is sorted out by it and you don't have a worried night (I hate fevers, can't relax just want to watch them all night)

have you given paracetomol and ibuprofen Sea?
children's nurofen definitely works better at lowering temperature in my 7 yr old.
