What are the signs of puberty in boys?

My son is so tired lately and sleeping a lot more than normal. He slept 11 hours last night, 3 hours this afternoon, and 7 hours later was ready for bed again. This is very unusual for him. Could it just be puberty setting in, or is this something I should be more concerned about?

Hi,

It can be due to anemia and hyperthyroidism. Take test for thyroid.

I Hope I have answered your query. If you have further doubts, I would be happy to help you. Happy day.
