ok ... this is not a joke .... i have had the same thing happen to me . my family and i live in this nice old 2 story victorian house across from jack and jills store , and it needed some work. Well we did new siding and some new windows and more littler thing to fix it up really nice looking and after a few weeks we started having some wierd things happen. it started with small noises and items moved around but it got worse as time passed. My room was the worst , the closet scared me and i told my dad so since i did not use it he put some 4in screws through it to seel it shut but every morning we would find it open. After a wile it seemed like everything went away until my sisters and mom went to a consert and my father and i were at home by ourselves . My father doesnt belive in ghost or anything in that nature but after that night we were scared ( shitless ) our door bell (witch had no wires hooked up ) started going off , and herd footsteps upstairs leading down the stairs 20ft from us then out tv goes fuzzy and our glass door in the dining room slamed shut and broke the glass all in a mater of 1 or 2 minutes .. Needless to say my slitely over weight father and chubby son ( me ) could out run a F16 with no problem we went to our friends house and stayed there for the night. We called mom and told them they just thought we were playing around they went home and more doors were slaming and stomping noises and ext... well we decided to do some research on the house and found out that there was a family way back in time that built the house , the mother , father , and 3 daughters and the daughters got really sick and passed away the father went nuts and finished the rest of the family and the house the were in was a saloon back at there time so there was probely even more blood shed , all we did is research on the house and tried to find that family and we did in the local simitary and we fixed up there sites and visited them and sayed our prayer for them and most of everything went away but there was somthing else in that house and it was not finished . some thing cant be changed so my family and i moved and never had that problem again ... THERE ARE WAYS THROUGH THING SUCH AS SO BUT NOT ALL THING CAN BE CHANGED I hope this helped u and i wasnt trying to be scary this is what truely happened to me my name is Timothy .and if you have any ? i will back to answer them..

Burn some sage in the room, walking counter clockwise, making sure the smoke gets into the corners. If there's a ghost and if it's a negative spirit, that should get rid of it.

I wouldn't feed into it too much by moving him out of the room. That justifies that there is something to be afraid of.
Instead, I would suggest giving him tools to handle it himself.
*Monster* or *ghost* spray can work wonders. Put some water in a spritz bottle with something that smells. A few drops of your perfume (comfort feeling of mom) or an essential oil (lavender is really nice and relaxing-you don't want anything too strong). Spray that around the room at bed time, explaining that this spray is a special monster or ghost repellent. Like bug spray. They don't like it so they stay far away. When you spray it, I would personally suggest talking at the same time, especially on the first few nights. Say something like *Okay ghost. I'm not going to let you scare my little boy anymore. I've got this foolproof ghost spray so you better get outta here!*
If he still gets up in the middle of the night, take him back to his room, spray again and put him back to bed.
You can also make up a little rhyme to tell the *ghost* to go away. He can say that rhyme whenever he feels like there's something there.
My personal favorite is a pagan spell that I found when I was younger. You visualize a ball of light surrounding you, a very strong ball of light and say *craft the spell in the fire; craft it now, weave it higher; craft the spell in shining flame; none shall come to hurt or maim; none shall pass this fiery wall; none shall pass, no, none at all*
You can easily make up something a lot simpler for him to say whenever he feels like it.

Depending on your spiritual beliefs, you can also bring that into play. If you believe there might actually be something other worldly going on, you can cleanse your house. There are a variety of different ways to do that, depending on your beliefs. Anything from calling in a priest to bless the house to smudging to any number of other things. Just Google it and you should be able to find something that fits your personal beliefs.

I feel the most important thing is to acknowledge that whether you believe in these things or not, whether you believe there's something in your sons room or not, HE believes it. There's no need to feed into his fear, but treat it as real as you can.
It is interesting to note that, when it comes to paranormal experiences, things frequently get stirred up after doing renovations. Apparently ghosts seem to not like change all that much.
Good luck :)

Is there a movie that he watched recently that had ghosts in it? Or something of that nature, like a fad for playing "ghost" at kindergarten among the other kids?

If not and this has just come out of nowhere, I'd switch his bed into a different room, or tell him he can sleep on a blanket on the floor in my room for a while.
