Hi there,

he is probably very embarrassed, so unless he mentions it, it is best to not say anything. If he does then just say sorry for intruding.

Did you just walk into his bedroomor the bathroom? If so from now on, given his age, please knock and then wait for him to say come in before you go into his room. From now on he needs his privacy.

Try not to worry too much, just give him his space.

Best wishes
