Hi there,
It looks like your son is suffering from frontal sinusitis. Its nothing serious to worry about. If i was your doctor i would recommend u to get his X ray PNS done. That would confirm my diagnosis. Also start antibiotics and try steam inhalation because it helps draining the sinus. Taking plenty of fluids is good in such conditions and rest his appetite will be back once he gets well.
