My 2 year old son is a total Virgo, and he has a weird thing about his sleeves being pushed up or his pants bunching at his knees. He freaks out if you don't pull his sleeves down after washing his hands (or remind him that short sleeves don't pull down), and if his pants bunch up at night, he cries until I fix it. We went round and round for an HOUR last night because his pants wouldn't come down as far as he wanted. Could he have OCD? Should I talk to his ped? We try to tell him that things don't have to be just-so, but this one really bugs him.

That sounds more like a sensory issue. And his doesn't sound so bad. Just keep reminding him or show him how to fix it himself. If it gets too bad, They make sensory safe clothes for kids. Like tagless, no cuff sleeves and pants.
