It is difficult to know from your desciption of your baby's illness if he has a cold or an infection of his stomach and intestines which is called gastro-enteritis. As he is vomiting he runs the risk of becoming dehydrated. Try and give him frequent extra sips of Rehidrat solution. If his symptoms do not settle he must be seen by a doctor.
