In brief: Snoring

Snoring is generally not considered normal.
It depends on the degree that the child is snoring to some extent. However, studies have shown that snoring may be more significant then previously suspected. This may indicate there are issues obstructive sleep apnea. This can cause behavioral problems, hyperactivity.Poor school performance, and other issues. You should talk to pediatrician.
