Hi Thank for asking to HCM.
In small children common cause of bleeding from nose is finger nail trauma due to itching in nose because of infection.
I would advice you cut his nail regularly & maintain hygiene of hands .
Here my suggestion is that you should consult your ENT doctor for thorough examination, necessary investigations and treatment.
Hope this information helpful to you, take care and have a nice day.
Regards.
