Hello. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
At the age of 5, there is nothing wrong in cross dressing. This could fall out from curiosity and playfulness. You should try to change his such a behavior by diverting him to other activities which he is interested in. This should be easy. This behavior should not be allowed to grow.
Hope I have answered your query. You can contact me for treatment options. Let me know if I can assist you further.
