As this seems to be long term issue, I m sure you must have tried all behavioral modifications. If not please start with this and if already done better to start medicine. Nasal spray now has limited role with it so better to be avoided..
Next Steps
definitely required consultation for better plan.

Did he have any sacral dimple at birth? Reduce fluid intake after 6 pm and encourage to take plenty of liquids in the day time. Keep a alarm and wake him to pass urine at night.
Next Steps
Since all the investigation are normal, behavioural therapy will help. Do not worry. Try this daily , after few months, he will be completely toilet trained.
