Ask him what he thinks and talk about his answer. My son ask these questions all the time. "what is at the edge of space?" and he's now going on 10! some times they just ask to be silly and see how you react.

I would turn the question onto him and say what makes you ask that? Then settle him by saying mummy is never going to eat you silly. Give him a hug and again ask him again what made you ask that. you will probably find it is something he has seen in a cartoon that has unsettled him.
