Problem with son

Hi. I have a son whose age is 12 yrs ... I feel that he always keeps his hand in my navel...but for some days I have noticed that he just keeps his finger inside my navel ,it feels very tickling to me but as being my son I couldn’t stop him. He does it often now...and does it for 5-6 min then he stops. I was astonished by his act. I tried talk with him severely for his act, but without results .Then I feel sorry for him because, he is my only cute little son what should I do now in this situation, please help me.
I know that talkig at forum can be hard so this is my email -

I think you need to explain personal boundaries to him. Explain that everyone has an invisible space around them that you shouldn't cross.
If he was 2 then I could understand it as a comfort thing but by 12 you should have stopped it long ago. Why is your 12yo putting his hand under your top?
You have enabled it so you need to stop it.
