Sleep and breathing: Every one has a different pattern of sleep cycle children do vary if he is not snoring or gasping or waking up he should be ok but if its that audible and you are worried will be a good idea to check with his peds to make sure does not have any breathing related issues adenoids etc
if he is waking up fine and not grumpy and no midnight awakenings things should be ok but better to get a checkup.
