Our son had a hydrocele and it went away some time between 6 and 8 months, more or less. It's fairly common and usually resolves itself. That said, no harm in having it checked out to rule out another problem.
I would touch base with a doctor just to rule out any other issues and to learn about signs of a hernia, etc (which is what your main concern is if your DS has a hydrocele.)
