I claim my son as a dependent. He has a taxable scholarship. Do I claim that income on my return or does he? He has other income and files a return.

My son is in college.  I claim him as a dependent on my return.  He received a 1098-T.  He received more in scholarships (box 5) than what he had in eligible expenses, resulting in a taxable scholarship.  That amount appears on the dependent student information worksheet but that amount did NOT flow through to Form 1040 Line 7.  My son had other income also an files his own return.  Which one of us claims the taxable scholarship amount on their return, the student or the parent?Thank you.
