My 5 yr old got knocked in his baby tooth and it's loose now. Do I just leave it alone?

In brief: Yes
He is nearing the age when he would lose his teeth anyway.

In brief: Ask the dentist
Its true he is nearing the age of losing his teeth but you should take him to the dentist to check.
They may want to take an x-ray to make sure the adult tooth wasn't damaged.
