My son has tourettes.... we started to notice things like this around 5 yrs old.
Don't ask him to stop - he cant (if he has the same issue). But take note of when it happens and how often. Also look for other ticks.... like eye blinking, throat clearing, anything that seems just a hint off. Keep track of them. Bring you list and concerns to your doctor for an evaluation.
My son is now 15 and we have seen a HUGE variety of ticks.... really it isnt too hard to deal with.
Best of luck!
