Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Yes I think you should take him to the doctor once.
This is because you are mentioning that your kid is sleeping most of the time.
Was a throat swab for culture and sensitivity done?
Any other investigations like TLC, DLC, CRP done?
Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
