hi there,

I am online and will be happy to answer your questions.

thank you for your patience.

is he coughing, breathing okay?

most commonly and most likely , quarter will be in his stomach and will come out through poop in day or so. if he has chest pain, coughing, breathing diffiulty, take him to ER now. if not, then give soft food and bananas , water to move it along the gastrointestinal tract.
