Baby's tongue stays on one side??

Someone has to know if this is normal or a symptom of something. Ds2 is 13 months almost. He's had a bad headcold for 3 days (ear tubes draining, low fever, runny nose ). Today out of the blue he's been keeping his tongue off to the right side of his mouth- chewing on it, sticking it out, but not flat- just stays off to the right side. What is going on??

Can you check in his mouth to see if he has any sores? Hand foot mouth is very painful, and if he has any sores, he might be trying to avoid hitting that side.

Ill look when he wakes up. What are other symptoms for that? Don't they get a rash too cause he doesn't but he hasn't eaten much today either so

Usually you can find little dots on his feet, and between his fingers...but, not always. I typically see the spots in the diaper area and down the legs more than any other area. The ones in the diaper area aren't tiny, they look like little bug bites.
