My 11 months old boy likes grinding his teeth, is it normal or there''s something that i must do?

This is not normal as such but is very common at this age. It usually happens when children start getting their molar teeth.This habit usually stops by itself., but if it does carry on it can last for years until the permanent teeth start to appear.
