Yes: Especially if any fever, nausea or decreased appetite. It could be appendicitis so get medical evaluation asap.

Yes: The right lower quadrent is where appendicitis hurts. It evolves over a day or 2 and classically can hurts when walking or pounding on the bottom of the foot. It is not in the groin, ie. Above the pelvic bone. There are many other things it could be but you don't want to miss an appendicitis. Get it checked out. Good health.

Emergency room now: Yes, go to the ear now, to make sure he does not have acute appendicitis, because you describe the signs and symptoms of appendicitis. And it may be an surgical emergency.
