If he already did, you won't be able to efile your return. You'll need to print out your return and file by mail. The IRS will then help you two sort out who is allowed to claim the dependent(s). 

Here is some more information on that process, including timing and eligibility rules: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1899162-what-if-somebody-already-claimed-my-dependent
