37c is borderline fever. I'd give him a little bit of tylenol (acetanomiphen or paracetamol) and see if his fever drops. Only if it does not or if he starts refusing to eat, would I then call a doctor.

You can always call the doc and ask. I have called and told them what was going on and usually a nurse would call me back. Watch and make sure he is having wet diapers.
