1 doctor agrees

In brief: That depends

Causes of drooling vary with age.
I'm not qualified to discuss childhood causes, but in adults a variety of neurologic and even psychiatric disorders can have inability to control one's saliva. Some medications are associated with this. If persistent, i recommend you see a doctor.
