Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The description of the symptoms indicate the possibility of a acute viral infection, like common cold.

You can help his symptoms with medications like Motrin for kids, to relieve his symptoms.

Providing supportive help with proper rest for a few days, good nutrition, adequate hydration will be sufficient in most cases.

In case the symptoms are not tolerable, you may consult with your doctor for proper advice and treatment.
