In brief: Yes

Need more history.
Could be he burned his tongue on something hot. Could be a reaction to acidic food. More likely it is a viral infection. He needs to be seen and evaluated. How swollen is the tongue? Any trouble swallowing? Drooling at all? These are things that are best addressed in a visit.
