In brief: Yes you should call

Persistent coughing is not normal, especially if it is interfering with his feeding or sleep etc.
..Having reflux increases the risk of aspirating food/acid fluid into the airway/lungs causing cough etc..If it is mild and intermittent, he like will be fine. If severe, get him to see the doc for eval. Good luck.

In brief: Yes

There is too strong of an association with wheezing when child has reflux in infancy.
He may need immediate medical attention.
