History suggestive of upper respiratory tract infection....Chronic cough is defined as lasting eight weeks or longer in adults, four weeks in children...cough may be due to post nasal drip or asthma and acid reflux the backflow of stomach acid that can irritate his throat...I would suggest you to take him to nearest pediatrician for clinical examination they will do the needful.
