Poor little fellow, eh?
It may just be an phase/age thing, but I would suggest seeking some info and speaking to your GP.
At least this will put your mind at easeor give you some management technques to help your lad.
I'm just a psych student and have done a little work on trichtotillomania as an impulse-control disorder.
I found some literature from a research paper I completed and remembered this website which may give you some relevant basic information. There is a section on children/teens.http://www.trich.org/
