Is he a righty or lefty?

My 4 1/2 year old son has been skating for a couple years now and of course playing hockey on the floor for much longer. He has always held his stick right hand up higher. I can't say right hand on top cause he never has his hand at the top of the stick, and he often one hands it, constantly has to be reminded to hold it in 2 hands. The truth is he has always kinda held it at awkward angles, which I just attributed to him being young. Earlier today he grabbed it with his Left at the top and was shooting a ball like a right hander, it looked a lot more natural; then he switched back to the other way. So I'm not sure I should push him to shoot/hold the stick the way it looked more natural or let him continue the way he seems more used to / comfortable.
