In brief: Time to see the doc

I would probably get this checked out.
This may represent a secondary infection such as an ear infection or pneumonia. This may also be a continuation of a viral infection as well.

In brief: Watch closely

It sounds like something contagious.
Possibly viral given the presence of "cold". Runny nose, cough, mild to moderate fever are suggestive of it. Flu is another option - higher fever, less upper respiratory symptoms, except for cough, more ill appearing. If no vomiting present, try tylenol/ibuprofen, cool sponge baths to reduce the fever. If no other symptoms, have him take fluids and watch close.
