In brief: Not sure

It sounds like your endocrinologist needs extra validation that the MRI is ok.

In brief: Headaches

A neurologist can be helpful in managing frequent headaches.
It's also beneficial to have a neurologist confirm that the findings on the MRI were normal variants, especially since your son does have the frequent headaches.
