I think all children go this phase sometime in their lives. My daughter had a habit of banging her head on the floor pretty hard. I just let her keep doing it because I knew she was going to do it hard enough to hurt one day. Sure enough, she banged her head on some bricks and she quit doing it. Sounds mean but she did it to herself and she learned.

Attention seeking im sure, i would ignore him but if it persists maybe talk to him, give him even more attention and keep him busy
