My son has as enlarged tonsils and he's waiting to get them taken out along with his adenoids, he has his mouth open with his tongue out so he can breath as he can't through his nose. He also snores like an old man because of the tonsils.

I was just going to say this adenoids and tonsils can block the nose cavity to to breath you have to keep your mount open . Work speaking to a health care professional about this one I'd say. Keep us posted

I have also been wondering about his nose and/or tonsils. Our family doctor thought he looked fine at the 12-month checkup but I may go back to ask again, or get a referral to a specialist. He doesn't snore. I can see his tonsils when he yawns but don't know what to look for.
