my 7 yr old son recently started facial twitching

I have a 7 yr old son who recently started to scrunch his nose and brows. We were telling him to just stop doing it and he would say okay but he doesn't stop. He doesn't do it constantly but he does do it a lot. We have since asked him if he can stop doing it and he says he can't and he doesn't even know when he is doing it. We want to write it off as one of his bad habits because he has had a few of those. He used to bite his nails constantly and then he would do this weird breathing thing where he would take a loud short breath out, then he started taking a jump in the middle of walking. He has since stopped those habits. Like I said, we really want this to be one of those bad habits but would like to know the possibilities of what else it might be. Thank you...
