In brief: There aren't any

In fact, if you're talking about the typical unexplained transient breast enlargement that occurs in some boys during puberty, building up of the pectoral muscles seem mo or prominent.
Stop consuming any medications or drugs that might be causing the problem and try to lose weight.

In brief: Weight loss

If the breasts are fatty tissue, then diet and aerobic exercise will help.
If it is true breast tissue, then surgery may be needed. Take him to his pediatrician.

Male breasts are quite common in the male going through puberty / the teen years, they may resolve with time.

In brief: Male breast tissue

About 1/2 males will undergo a transient nipple/breast enlargement at he onset of puberty.
Carrying extra weigh aggravates the issue as part of the enlargement is fat.Most will resolve slowly as other hormonal changes kick in over about a year. If the process is unchanged after 2-3 yrs ; you've made an effort to lose any extra weight, it is time to discuss it with a surgeon. No meds will fix it.
