My 4 month old son (premature baby(2.5 month)) begins to cry in his sleep with his eyes closed every night betwin 02:00-05:00.
He has already slept a whole night before and wakes up only at six in the morning

He usually sleeps 40 minutes in the morning and between 1 and 2 hours in the afternoon and short naps during the day.

He eats at intervals of four hours through the day.
His last meal is usually six-thirty, Then he takes a shower and goes to sleep (And he manages to fall asleep on his own with a pacifier in bed.)

Does anyone have any idea what bothers him?

Thanks in advance

Do you feed him at all in that time?

I'm wondering if it isn't related to the 3mo growth spurt (some schools of thought say they catch up a "week" every month when they are Premie, so that would make him 3mo & it maybe that if you feed him at 2am he may settle back into a deep sleep.
