Just because your son may have some kind of nervous tick doesn't mean it's Tourette's. If you're concerned about the behavior, you should talk to your son, talk to the father about it, and maybe have the boy get diagnosed by a medical professional. It's really not the end of the world, so I would try not to be too distressed by it.
