Though not so common at this age group, You need to rule out Auditory Hallucinations.

Visit a child psychologist/ child psychiatrist for this.
If its persistent, he has to be evaluated surely for this.

How were his developmental milestones- normal or delayed? How is he at school now? Is he mingling with his friends as usual? Any chance of being bullied or abused ?
These things have to be looked into when you visit your child psychologist.

Hope my answer helps you.
Best wishes.
