Hello Hazal! My name is***** to JustAnswer. Thanks for asking me this question,I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Has there been any swelling in the leg?

Since how long he is experiencing this pain?

No. I didn’t notice any swelling.

The pain only happened once.

Thanks for the information

If it happened just once then it could be a muscle sprain

Children are prone to get these as they are usually more active in various sporting activities

You can give her Ibuprofen suspension for pain relief

If the problem continues then see your doctor for an examination of the leg to assess whether he require any investigations or not
