Brief Answer:
yes it can happen

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to health care magic.
Muscle knots can occur at any age.
It is because of excess calcium released in the nerve endings where the nerve tissue signals the muscle fibers.
Normally these knots can happen spontaneously or after a viral illness . But most of them tend to disappear spontaneously.
If really painful give your toddler acetaminophen. Hot compress with warm towels and massage should help too.
Ensure he drinks plenty of liquids to keep himself hydrated as dehydration can make these knots worse.
Wishing your toddler good health
