yes he is athletic , could weight be a factor . he is 5'8 215 lbs.
Is he athletic? There is a growth plate in that area and it is a common site for stress fractures in athletic kids. Take him to the doctor. If it is a fracture of the growth plate, it can affect the further growth of the leg so it is important to have it seen to.
