Thanks for writing to us.
The commonest reasons for constipation at this age is less fibre in the diet. I would suggest you to increase fruits and vegetables in diet.
Water or liquids like juices and tender coconut water should be given in plenty.
For timebeing to help him pass stools you can try lactulose suppositories.
That will help to evacuate stools easily.
Apart from that if constipation persists for a longer time do thyroid functions test.
Wishing your child good health.
