Most likely your son has put a pin code on his phone. This code is stored in the SIM card and when you power up the phone it asks for a pin code before you can operate the phone.
In some cases when you enter the wrong pin code too many times the SIM card will lock up. You need to contact the phone service provider for assistance to unlock/remove the pin code.

Your's is an Android mobile phone I believe.
For Andorids with the Pattern lock, if you try the wrong pattern 5 times, you are given the option to use your Gmail account to unlock and reset your Android device unlock pattern.
Once you get the prompt for the Gmail login, use the account that you have set up in your Android device. This would take you to the option of resetting the unlock pattern.
Please note that if you have set up the 2-step-verification for Google accounts, your password will not be the regular Gmail password. You'll have to generate the authorizing password here: https://www.google.com/accounts/IssuedAuthSubTokens
Hope it helps. If so, please consider rating this solution.
