Some children still wet the bed until they are 10 or so. It's normal. He definitely shouldn't be punished for it.

Maybe get him some night time pants (like pull ups for older kids) for him to wear so you don't have to wash the sheets all the time.

The worst thing you can do is compare him to his siblings. Also have a talk to him and see if there is anything that's bothering him lately. I find that my middle child will wet the bed when there are problems at his Dad's house.
