The photos I’ve seen have had more than one kid in ROTJ. And a nice symmetry is that Davis’s son was in TROS.

IIRC, one of the reasons he got cast was his height. He’s actually shorter than most of the other Ewoks. The Classic Creatures documentary mentioned some little people being rejected for Ewok roles, being told for the first time in their lives they were too tall!

I mean it would be weird if he was the only kid involved right?
