So there are lots of things that can cause vomiting.

Bacteria

Viruses

Metabolic disease like liver, kidney, pancreas

Food allergy

Eating something that is not food

So without doing further testing like an exam, blood work, and/or abdominal x-rays I can not tell you the exact cause of the bile vomiting.

Can he keep water down? How often is he vomiting?
