Okay, kindly check with pedodontist/ general dentist and get it filled asap, reg permanent ones , he wont have any problems.
These milk teeth are deciduous and they will be replaced by permanent teeth.If there are caries than get them filled.
It can be the sign of tooth decay. Best is to go to a dentist preferably a pedodontics for filling the teeth.
Visit a dentist and get the teeth filled so as to protect the permanent teeth.
U contacts ur dentist
Caries spread from milk teeth to permanent teeth. Get them fixed ASAP. Soon your child will have fresh teeth at age of 6.
You can get filling done.
Detailed x-ray and photos required to decide Visit pedodontist.
Your thinking is right. After the age of 7 years there will be mixed dentition(milk as well as permanent). You need to care of that black caries otherwise it spread in to permenat also. Permenat which erupts in mouth with decideous is at risk. Permenant which below that carious teeth is at lowest risk.

Nothing would happen since he is not having any pain he would get new set of teeth when he is 6-7 years of age till then brush twice daily ask him to gargle with salt water daily after meals.
His permanent teeth , incisors should erupting between 6-7 yrs.If not troubling otherwise you can leave your milk teeth.Till the permanent teeth erupts.
