green cheek conure sneezing

My conure started sneezing a couple days ago but doesn't act sick. Is it possible he is copying me? I have allergies that cause me to sneeze. He coughs whenever he sees or hears my mom, who has a smokers cough. He has learned many words and phrases and I wonder if he is just copying yet another sound.
I dont want to be paranoid but I dont want anything to happen to my baby.

Yes, it's possible the bird is doing what you do, but it is also possible the bird is actually having a medical issue.

Keep an eye on him, and watch to see if the bird sneezes often, even when you are not in the room. If the bird seems lethargic or has a wet discharge, then get him to an avian vet for a checkup. There is no way of telling if a bird is sick over the Internet.
