My 6 month old grandson's head jerks way back when he is upset or laughing. It causes him to go completely off balance. Should we be worried about this?

This sounds like a muscle control thing. Make sure he spends lots of time on his tummy moving his head about or in a bumboo. This will strengthen his neck muscles. If this continues after he is 8 months then it might be worth a chat with a GP.
