Depends: When children or people in general fall into deep sleep they can have jerky movements. If the child will develop a fever she or he can develop chills. Otherwise you should talk with the child pediatrician about it.

Typically not: The jerky movements would need to be observed and several things evaluated by history, physical exam and blood tests. A consultation with a neurologist would be recommended.
