That's not that unusual and is considered "normal" behavior. He is trying to tell you he is content and happy to be with you. Lots of kittens and cats chew on their person's hair, hands and other body parts, lick them, or even suck on their clothing, blankets, etc. I have an 18-year-old cat that has always given us little gnawing-type chews on our arms or legs when she's feeling particularly loving. It's very common in kittens, and although some kittens decrease the behavior when they get older, others don't.
