Any portrait of a family member, especially a child, is precious. I don't care much for the lighting or pose but hey it's your son so who am i to say its not good. He a good looking kid, for that you should be proud. Looks like hes got a nick on his lip, hopefully he got that in a school yard brawl (yes i jest, the last thing i want is for my son to get is some fight), accentuate it a bit and see if you can get a more striking pose from him. I'd experiment a bit, turn his shoulders, exaggerate the jaw line by bringing his forehead towards the camera, fill the frame as they say, that should create a nice jaw line and turn a snap shot into a portrait.

ordinarily I'd turn the subject's body to the camera.... but in this case you want to see all the badges etc...
