In brief: Please have him seen
With a temperature like that, i'd recommend having him seen today.
Given his age, it's a good idea to make sure it's not a bacterial infection. I hope he feels better soon!

In brief: Depends
I would try treating with appropriate dose of tylenol (acetaminophen) and tepid bath.
If the fever does not come down within 30-60 minutes or if the child is signficantly uncomfortable i would recommend you take them on in to get checked out. If the fever is controlled you should definitely take the child to the doctor in the morning to find the cause of the fever.
