Took 1 chest x-ray and 1 nasopharynx x-ray in the last one month for my 4 year old son as he is having prolonged cough. will there be any radiation effect due to the x-ray when he grow or in the future? is it normal to take 2 x ray in a month time?

The radiation exposure you described is unlikely to have any perceptible immediate or delayed adverse effects. Wish you and you son good health!
