If the stones were actually in his kidney and they are less than 2 mm, chances are he may pass them on his own. However, he needs to be seen by a pediatric nephrologist to do a 24 hours urine collection to figure out why he is making these stone and to determine if he actually needs to be on medicines for this or not. Stones in someone his age are not normal and need to be investigated further. Hope this helps and let me know if I can clarify anything.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
