Hi Anon

Thanks for your question and welcome !

It could be his appendix but the pain should be moving from his belly to his lower right side. If he has any vomiting or bloating of his belly region, he needs to be seen straight away.

He may simply have a stomach flu or other stomach bug but please take him to the doctor immediately to rule out something else, including appendicitis.

How long has this been going on? If it's more than a couple of days, he needs to see a doctor asap.

Please keep us updated!
