No, it's not serious. Lots of people drool in their sleep. There are several ways you can prevent this. First, if at all possible, sleep on your back. This way you will swallow during sleep intead of drooling. Secondly, try to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth. Thirdly, if you have allergies, a cold or other sinus problems that prevent you from breathing from your nostrils, you may need to see a doctor and/ or go on some type of medication to treat this.
***** If it is normal, clear saliva that is seen the next morning, I doubt it is a problem. However, if the drool is foamy or bubbly that may indicate that you suffer from sleep apnea- periodically stopping breathing during sleep.
