Paediatrician

It is possible that your son is just eating too much, but his weight is just on the average for his age.So based on his weight he is probably not being overfed.He may have a reflux problem as he brings up food all the time. It would be worthwhile asking your paediatrician to see him as he would benefit from being on treatment for reflux.
