In brief: See his doctor.

I'd suggest having him see his pediatrician to ensure that this is common acne and not something else.
If it is common acne, there are a number of prescription treatments for acne, some antibiotic, some not, and your son's doctor can work with you to decide what's best for your son.

In brief: Go to dermatologist

Acne is a very frustrating disorder. He might need prescription antibiotics topically and or orally.
