You will have to mail your return this year to claim him.

He will have to amend his return.  How to amend an Online return https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/7276596

So, in the meantime, how do I (the parent) claim him as a dependent?  Otherwise, what I owe doubles!

You claim him on your return.  You have to print and mail your return.  You don't have to wait for him to amend his.
