Brief Answer:
Apparently yes could be indigestion

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing in

yrs it deems to be gastrotis and / or collitis
may be he has consumed junk food or may have taken a contaminated drink

I would suggest you give him a good probiotic for five to seven days

add an antacid three times a day

if this does not work add a ppi

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern
