Hello Mrs Richa
Definitely he should not have so much salivation. May be his oro-dental hygien is not good .Get checked by a dental surgeon. Also keep watch on his developmental mile stones in some conditions child is having excess salivation.If mile stones are delayed consult paediatrician for further investigations.
