Veins in arms and legs

My 10 year old son has blue veins in his arms and legs that are visible...these veins aren't varicose or spider veins. They are just normal looking blue veins. Is this normal?

I dont think there is anything to worry about considering Blood is originally a Bluish color (inside the body) before it hits the air (when its exposed to air it turns red) They are probably just close to the skin which would explain  the reason why u can see them. if you just want to be on the safe side go see a physician..but i dont think there is anything to worry abt.
