I've seen my GCC do a very rapid head bob when I give her something especially good to eat on occasion. I see it mostly if I give her something that is about the consistancy of hand feeding formula, like letting her lick a bit of yogurt off a spoon. The rapid head bobbing is what a baby would do if being fed by a parent, so I assume some soft foods like that trigger that sort of reaction.
As for the regurgitating, it's probably normal. Mates will feed each other, and also a well fed baby will sometimes help feed its siblings if they are still begging... I would guess that he just wants to share his treat with someone for whatever reason... lol.
