thumb sucking

I noticed lately that my almost 7 year old is sucking his thumb.........i have no idea why he has started this. He has never been a thumb sucker and none of his siblings do it either.....Not sure what to do about it

    Agreed, probably picked it up from one of the new friends. Have you asked him about it?

        Is he bored? I agree he could be imitating someone he's seen suck his thumb. It will be interesting to hear what he says is his reason.
