Can be habitual constipation. Try out regular toilet training high fibre diet & stool softeners like muout till the problem is resolved. If still not resolved other conditions like hirshsprungs disease congenital hypothyroidism fissure in ano etc have to be thought of. Suggest meet your pediatrician if problem persists. Regards
