This is very common problem, my child also had similar problem. I saw a doctor he said it is due to iron lacking. He gave some iron syrups and now my son has left that habit

Your son is having iron deficiency. Give him iron rich foods like dates, spinach. Also sask your child doctor to give hime some iron syrups.
