I would suggest seeing an Ophthalmologist (Eye doctor) asap. This can be something benign but also can be something more serious that needs to be looked at. The term is anisocoria. It can be just monitored or your son might need an MRI of the brain/orbits/neck to be sure nothing else in the brain is causing his pupils to look that way.
