Hi Archana, try and talk to him there must be something that is bothering him, if his nail biting habit as you say is relatively new. As for how to stop nail biting, you may apply edible oils that are bitter in taste or have strong smell like mustard oil on his nails. So that whenever he tries to bite his nails the smell on his nails stops him to do so. You may also apply chillies to his nails.
