Need help

Hi I have a friend who's boy I think suffers from ocd, the doctors think he may have ocd but are not sure, basically he's symptons are touching objects and moving his hand in order to cover the whole object and touching his parents faces like feeling with back of hand for no reason, he also has Tourette's and ADD in the past he has made a game of only stepping on certain tiles or cracked flooring but not anymore now it's just the feeling touching with the back of his hand, what do you think this sounds like if it's ocd what part of ocd would it be, the child claims not to be anxious or stressed while doing this things.
I suffer with ocd myself and found when I was his age I tended to do the same thing except for maybe touching people's faces as I had the contamination issue too, so I don't know.
I'm a lot worse now, I feel I have pure o but it's not about me it's about this young boy and his parents.
