How old was he at the end of the year?  Was he in school anytime during the year?  Did he live with you for over six months?  Did he collect unemployment?  Did he make over $4150?  Did he provide more than half his own support for all of 2018 (value of housing, food, transportation, education, recreation) ?

Your son made way too much for you to be eligible to claim him given that he was not a student and over 18 years old.  The limit is $4150.
