In brief: Yes but not likely
Routine gallstones are very uncommon.
Typically stones in kids are related to hemolytic diseases such as sickle cell. There are case reports of parasites. Mostly biliary disease is secondary to abnormal development such as atresia, choledochal cysts, pancreatic anomalies. Again these are uncommon.
