In brief: Nosiy breathing -kid

If your child is havign noisy brreahting in sleep you hsould have him checked out as it could be snoring vs a floppy airway.
Your pediatrician should lsiten to him and if necessary will refer yo to an ENT md.

In brief: Many causes

It may be helpful to record the sound and to have your pediatrician evaluate him. Snoring, nighttime cough/wheezing/stridor are some possible causes.
Some of the tests to consider include a pulse oximetry and/or a sleep test. If he has a history of asthma/allergies there are multiple treatment options available.
