In brief: Probably not serious

But, he could possess a sleep disorder called paroxysmal limb movements in sleep (aka, nocturnal myoclonus).
Rarely, epileptic seizures occur only at night, but your description is unlikely to represent such a problem. Easiest way to sort out involves visit to a sleep specialist, with a sleep study and eeg. Treatment is usually very successful.
