More description : Needed. Could be an aphthous ulcer or a traumatic ulcer (getting poked by a chip fragment for example). Very common. If it persists beyond a few days, get checked out by a dentist. Hope this helps.

Need more info: What color is it, how big is it, does it hurt, how long has been there? Theses questions and others need to be addressed before we can give you a meaningful answer. Best to have his doc look at him. Usually these things are benign but definitely have it checked out.

State a question: Please state a clear question, we would love to help! a cut tongue can be very bothersome but the good news is that the oral cavity heals fast! some over the counter pain medications may help to alleviate general pain if the cut is bad. For sharp pain or discomfort when eating/drinking, you can try purchasing some topical anesthetic, like orajel, which may help for a few minutes.

It : It would be appropriate to have him medically evaluated. Please call your pediatrician and ask for an appointment. Sometimes children can bite their tongue, then it appears whitish/yellow. If he has tongue swelling, shortness of breath, fever, or rash, then he should be seen as an emergency.
