The other kids seem to tolerate it, but my two years-old nephew often covers his ears and makes a face when hearing loud noises like music and roaring motorbikes. In this shot he covered his ears while the train whistle was heard at the train station. He doesn't like it when things are loud. Is this some kind of disorder or problem with his ears or is it something normal that some kids don't like loud noise?

The possible causes may vary; it can be just sensitive ears. Anyway, I think it’s normal to cover ears when things have annoying sound; we also do it, right? If the sound is just fine but your kid still covers his ears, it would be better to consult your pediatrician about this. I’ve read that it probably leads to Sensory Integration Issues or a sign of autism.
My nephew’s ears have been checked and there’s no problem found with his hearing. Hope the cause is only his sensitivity; he's a young boy who doesn't like loud noise. Have you ever faced similar situation?
