Stop breathing

My son is 9 years old. He is suffering from sinusites at the moment. This morning when I went to wake him, he had white lines around his mouth and he wasn't breating. I got him to wake up eventually after wiping his face with a cold cloth. He also stopped breathing when he was a baby. Last time it happened he was 14 months. What could be the cause?

You need to take him to a Paediatrician or an ENT urgently! he obviously has some obstruction or condition that needs urgent medical attention! Please treat this as urgent
