hello, welcome to HCM.
Firstly, this type of projectile vomiting is a characteristic sign of pyloric obstruction.
You must visit a pediatrician immediately, for a thorough clinical examination and for ordering investigations like blood electrolytes, Xray of abdomen in standing position, Ultrasound scan and for further management.
