Foam-like saliva come out of 4 years old boy due to blocked nose

Hi! My 4 yr ols son seem 2 have a blocked nose. Especially when he's sleeping, seems like he has difficulty breathing resulting in him snoring and trying 2 breathe through the mouth... and then as he sleeps facing up, a foam-like saliva come out. I think its becuase he breathes through the mouth. Please help, what do you think could be theproblem?

Hi well come to HCM.
Since he is breathing through mouth, suggests he has no comfort in breathing throug
nose.This suggests some partial obstruction in nasal passage could be due to deviated
septum, thick secretions, polyp, infrection etc. Consult your DOctor and get done clini-
cal examination to see for this. THanks
