have you taken his temp, blueberry? Or given him calpol, to see if it helps? How long has it been going on? It could be nothing or something...but if his temp is high (over 38) I would call the doctor for advice. Especially if you are in a swine flu area (not saying its that at all, but it could be, iyswim).
