In brief: Need more info

Does your child have any past medical history? Is your child having fevers? How often is your child having the pain and is it after eating? Pain around the belly button is very common and kids can have it for many reasons including emotional reasons.
That is why it is very important to document when your child is complaining. If your child is having fevers with the pain please see your doctor.
