Thank you for reaching out to us. Did you feed him anything unusual? Rinse his mouth multiple times with running tap water and see whether he still drools excessively. Also, try withholding his food for the next 12 to 24 hours. Water should be provided at all times. Then, gradually reintroduce a bland(e.g. boiled chicken, rice) or low-fat diet to him. Such a fasting approach is often effective in stabilizing the digestive system from vomiting or diarrhea. If the situation still doesn't improve, an appointment with a vet for a differential diagnosis is required in this case. This is because vomiting is not a specific disease or diagnosis itself. In the clinic, your vet is likely to carry out CBC, serum biochemistry, and urinalysis to first look out for any abnormalities and evaluate his overall health condition. Please consider taking him to a vet.
