Interesting question, and some nice responses. It's true that some kids are much more sensitive in general, than others. And some odd phobias arive without any reason anyone discoveres, and later they disappear, again without any reason being apparent. But some of the reactions you descibe sound a bit extreme, and if it is practical to take him to see a reachable child psychiatrist ( you don't mention where you are based ) might be a good idea. They have pleasant ways of exploring a child's fears and concerns, and could larify whether there is anything one should worry about here ( probably there won't be ) and can then give you some clear advice on how best to manage this to help him to feel more confident. These may be part of a more general phobia, or a general anxiety problem.
