In brief: First several weeks

Infants can move there heads at birth and over the first 2 months this improves greatly.

In brief: Between 2 to 4 month

He will lift the head up a little when prone by one month of age.
By 2 month he will be much better. By 4 month there should be a fairly good control of the head. Keep him on his tummy during play time when awake to strengthen those neck muscles!
