My child has got the shakes

I have an 19-month old boy, weight approx 15kg and is 92cm tall. A week ago i noticed that his hand starts to shake when his is trying to join objects together (eg: joining two toy tubes) and this morning while he was putting his bottle to his mouth his hand started to shake. He has recently had a cold and cough. Is this just muscle stimulation, symptoms of his cold or should i be concerned?
