I hope having the coach yelling in your ear should not be a factor on whether to call this. I would tell the coach something like "I'll deal with it" and then talk to the player or to the Umpire. Most coaches understand because, even though they'd like the free 5 yards, it may be their kid next play. Think of all the times on a punt when offensive linemen point to the players that they will block and actually cross the neutral zone with their arms when they point. Nobody is going to call that infraction.

I wouldn't let it go on all game and, if the kid won't respond to our suggestions, then I'd start flagging him but I would work to fix the problem first.
