In brief: Yes

Snoring is abnormal and the source of the snoring should be investigated.
Snoring is often a sign of upper airway obstruction (partial). The source could be from enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids and can be from nasal congestion. Talk with your pediatrician, i'm sure they can help decide what is best to do for it.
