Hypnagogic : Sometimes if you wake suddenly or dont entirely wake out of sleep brief hallucinations especially in children and teens are often not something to be too concerned about and are referred to as hypnagogic hallucinations. If it is a recurrent problem, occurs during normal wakefullness etc. Certainly talk to a doctor about it.
