Thanks for posting your query.

The best parameter would be according to BMI.

Do not calculate based on age.

Calculate weight for height.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.

Hello paul;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The weight of a person is related to height and not age so if your son has a height of 4'8" (4 feet * inches) or more then his weight is fine and if he is shorter also no reason to worry as children may be fat in early years and then lose weight.Just see that he has healthy diet and no much of junk food.
Take care.
