Finger sniffing

Hi my son is almost 11 and for Afew years now he's developed some really bad habits. He keeps doing funny neck movements abd moans about labels in the back of cloths that touch his neck,
He also keeps bending his hands (as though he's examining his nails) then puts them to his nose and sniffs them, when he's not sniffing he'll start with his hand in His lap and gradually bring them towards his mouth to chew when he thinks your not looking. Is this an illness. I need help as be gose to secondry school in September and don't want these if they are bad habits to continue.

He seems nervous about something. Nail biting or sniffing.

Ask him why he does this and how does he feel when he does this. How long have you noticed that he's been doing this? Sounds like he's coping with something. I'd talk to him first. And labels in the neck do itch, just cut them out.
