waking up screaming like he has had a bad dream

hi, how are you? i have a six month old son who is a great sleeper he has slept though the night since birth and has 2 little naps in the day, he is still sleeping perfect but has started occasionally waking up screaming like he has had a bad dream, sometimes he goes straight back to sleep or wakes up and smiles that i am there other times he cries which makes him hold his breath screams and shakes his head we get him out of his cot but is still asleep while he is crying it is scary because we think that something may have bitten him, is this normal for babies to dream or have bad dreams, or is it something to get checked
