Thank you for posting your query.

The most likely cause of pain in your son is childhood migraine. Migraine occurs commonly in children, and may affect one side of head more. There may be a feeling of nausea or vomiting. Pain increases in sunlight or with noise or after studies.

Other cause to be excluded would be sinusitis.

Please show him to a neurologist to confirm the diagnosis.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
