Why does my son, born in August, not qualify for the child tax credit. Received tax credit for my toddler.

Because your son was born in 2017, you need to put "12 months" for the number he lived with you in 2017.  If he meets all of the other requirements, making this change should make the Child Tax Credit calculate for him in addition to your toddler.
