You should make sure that his room is well ventilated and cool, especially during summer and that he has light bedding to sleep under. In rare occasions, night sweats can be associated with chronic infections, tuberculosis or neo plastic disease (certain types of cancers) and I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor for tests.

Kind regards
