Yes he is too young: at this age something could be bothering him, most commonly thirst or hunger, not getting enough, or excessive gas in his stomach that needs to be expelled, then he might need a bath to calm him down, also check around all over his body for anything unusual, especially his private parts, penis and testicles not red or inflamed, are they in place, if after all this nothing is noted see his doctor
