My 6 year old has lots of different tics for example jumping, twirling, looking up, turning his head to the side, blowing through his lips, clearing his throat. Is this ,just a nervous thing or something else? Thanks in advance

Could be that he just has a lot of stored up energy and is trying to find something to do to release it. My step-son is 8. He is really fidgety and often can't sit still. If you're really concerned, maybe speak to his pediatrician about it.
