My 4 year old has small twitches in his legs whilst watching tv and relaxed. Otherwise he is perfectly healthy and happy. Should I worry?

In brief: Normal

It is normal to have these twitches while falling asleep or relaxing.
They are called Myoclonus and if they are brief and in those circumstances they are normal and not to worry about.
