Hi

It might be because of gastritis.
Try to avoid spicy food/ citrus fruits/ coke etc.

He needs a course of acid suppressants like Lansoprazole 15 mg once a day for 5 days. This medication has to be given half an hr before food.

If vomiting persists, he might need medications like Domperidone/ Ondensetron.

Hope my answer helps.
Wish your son good health.
