Child is always tired. Done blood test. Has innocent heart murmur. Should I be worried?

My son is 11 in the 13 percentile for height and weight. I took him in for a routine check up and his b/p was 132/85. His Dr was concerned. Saw us 2 days later b/p was 125/89. We saw the Cardiologist b/p was 118/89. Normal exg. and has a innocent heart murmur .His b/p at school was 118/80 for 2 weeks straight. Cardiologist isn t concerned and wants to see him in 4 months. His labs looked good, but I do not know what that meant. I see red flags... My son is tired all the time. Falls asleep between 7pm and 8pm. Although his day starts at 6:15am... he is tired on the weekends too. Should I be more aggressive with the his doctors or am I being too worried?

Make sure that he has no anemia and hypothyroidism.
If other blood tests are normal no need to worry.
Give him high protein and high calorie diet more milk,juices fruits etc.
give him a general multivitamin- .mineral tablet once a day.
Good luck
