This could be an Intermmitent Squint, which usually starts at this age.
He needs a thorough evaluation by a Pediatric Ophthalmologist to rule out Lazy eye, presence of refractive errors (Short sight, etc) or any other problem in his eye.
Please remember not to ignore this early symptom.

This is likely to accomodative squint,which is corrected by cycloplegic drugs and glasses if needed,if delayed the squinting eye looses vision.

Could be. Take him to opthalmogist and get examined. Some times smaller children can not focus when you ask them to do, but this is not uncommon. Sometime minor squint one is able to correct when you ask them to ,so see a eye specialist.
