Tonsilitis: Your son may have tonsilitis, which is infammation of his tonsils. The cause can be viral or bacterial. Viral is generally self limited. Bacterial is not. I recommend you give your family physician a call or if you are able to, just drop by and see them.

Does it bother him ?: If the kid is playful & feeding well, why bother.Treatment of low grade fever is an option & one more necessary if the kid is fussy or shows other signs of feeling bad.If you ever bathe for fever keep the water luke warm or the brain will respond & push the temperature up not down. Fever is a natural response in illness & helps increase blood flow & circulation of healing factors.

Not enoough info: Hard to answer without more info. The age of the child is important as well as how high the fever and if any other symptoms. If it does not return and no physical symptoms or behavior changes than not likely an issue. If it returns need to be able to document max temp, response to meds if given, other symptoms and possible exposures. An exam can find sources like ears not seen by parents.
