In brief: Varies

First of all, be sure they are migraines.
If so, many treatments are available for this. A pediatric neurologist or neurodevelopmentalist is your best bet to help with treatemnt. By the way, diet and sleep problems can impact migraines significantly.

In brief: NSAID's

Antiinflammatories like ibuprofen, Naproxen and others are the first line of treatment for migraine headaches, even in adults.
Because of your question, i think you are aware that triptan drugs like imitrex, (sumatriptan) Maxalt and others are not indicated at his age.
