Hi there..breathing through mouth may be due to adenoid hypertrophy, cold, sinusitis.. adenoid hypertrophy is most common reason for children mouth breathing.. there is gland called adenoids in inner part of nose which becomes big during infection and causes block of nose so they breathe through nose.. kindly visit Ent specialist soon..
