    Good morning. Sorry about that. At 11 weeks, it's still early for teething. But he may have an underlying condition. Have you noticed any other symptoms like fever, cough, catarrh, purging etc. Please take him to see a doctor preferably a pediatrician for review as soon as possible. All the best
