Aspirated peanut into windpipe. Trying to cough it up. No trouble breathing. See the doctor immediately?

My son aspirated a small peanut into his windpipe. He s been trying to cough it up, but it s stuck right in the middle of the throat area. It s been a couple of hours and he says he can feel it; has no trouble breathing , but it won t come up or go down. Should he go to the ER? it s difficult to get him to go see a doctor.
