In brief: Not unusual
Year olds often have a runny nose for what seems like forever, particularly those in day care.
The color and consistency will vary and does not mean necessarily that it is sinus infection but if it remains thick green and yellow for 2-3 weeks he may benefit from an antibiotic. I always recommend using saline nose spray and suctioning if you can>.
