Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Monitor him for danger signs like poor feeding, vomiting , lethargy etc.

Since he has some of the danger signs I suggest you should take him to the doctor at the earliest.

Does he have any other problem like cough, burning urination or sore throat?

Continue to ask further queries.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
