it depends; if he supports himself more than half then you can’t claim him as a dependent.as a qualifying child; To be claimed as a qualifying child, he must be your child; for more than half the year, he must live in your home; he must be either under age 19 at the end of the year, or under age 24 and a full-time student for at least five months out of the year regardless of hia income amount; he did not provide more than half of his or own support during the year
