Breath Weapon while Grappling...

Okies... One of my players has a half-dragon, and got grappled by a golem. H ehad absolutely no chance of beating the grapple check of the golem, so he asked if he could use his breath weapon while grappling. I didn'tknow what to say to that, but since he had no chance of escaping or doing anything else, i allowed it since he wasn't yet pinned. The golem failed its save and was reduced to a pile of pitted stone, just like that... Didn'tbother me too much at the time, since i had already killed off 2 players already with the golem and the story needed to progress... My question is- can you use your breath weapon while grappling...? Does it require a successful grapple check...? I would argue that you can cast a still spell with no components while grappling without a check, so who's to say you can't breathe on someone...? If he was pinned, I'd definately say no... Thoughts,anyone...?
