In brief: Anxiety

Most likely, these symptoms may go with anxiety about a new situation, a fear or problem. Acknowledging that he may be worried about something and allowing him to tell you in his own way may be a good start.
If he is not able to talk about his feelings, a therapist can be very helpful.
