5 Year old inserted marble in anus

Hi, my five year old inserted a marble in his anus. I want to know what to do. Will it come out when he has a stool or should I take him to a doctor? Thanks

A marble is most likely to come out when he passes a stool and is not the kind of object that should cause any problems.
