hi welcome to Health Care Magic,
why do you want to do that fr him now. if its avoidable, do avoid it. there is no direct problem with that but it can have associated issues, so might as well wait till ur baby is fine.

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, your baby has been suffering from fever n cold so do not shave his head, as during fever baby become irritable which pricipipate by shaving n may be possible after taking bath intensity of fever may rise . so wait for subsiding fever.
