My son does this a lot. His tear ducts are not formed right and they block.
We get eyedrops to keep on hand for him. A dr also told me to take a warm moist wash cloth and rub lightly to clean the corner of the eye. this might unblock the duct.
I would still take him to the dr. soon because you need those drops to make sure his eye does not get infected. Plus the drops clear it up fast and if it happens again you already have them.
Hope this helps!
