My 5-year old son has starting having a bit of dark circles under his eyes. He sleeps well but is moody while eating. Should we be careful ?

In brief: See his doctor

Dark circles can be a normal finding, but can signify many things, including allergies, poor sleep, or other causes.
If your son's behaviour change is new, this should be evaluated as well, since these findings may all be related. I advise you to see his pediatrician.

In brief: Sleeping patterns

Even though your son may lay down for normal numbers of hours he may be waking up frequently or having trouble falling asleep.
Please have him evaluated by his pediatrician for any problems with sleeping, eating, or digestion.
