In brief: Family practice

Possibly immune defeciency syndrome might consider a hematologist or immunologist.

In brief: Low wbc count

Low WBC count in children can present a diagnostic dilemma.
It may be a benign condition or it may an auto immune disease. From what you write it seems to be a benign condition. In any case i hope he is under the care of a pediatric hematologist.
