yes by history this seem to be a case of neurocutaneous syndrome .
in his mom there is freckle and light colored hair - which may be one of sign of neurofibromatosis .
but in your child there is dark colored irregular shaped spot on the side of nose this also may be a marker of neurocutaneous syndrome .
give additional details of your child or consult to dermatologist for further evaluation
