Adult son aged out of health insurance in June 2016. How do I enter on Health Insurance part of taxes?

On his tax return, under the Health Insurance tab:

If your son had coverage for the entire year (on the parent's plan, then his own) with no lapses, then answer 'yes' on the page, Did you have health insurance coverage in 2016?

Answer no, if there was a gap in coverage at any point in the year. Then proceed to enter the months covered.

If he was 18 and claimed as a dependent on our tax return, can he claim this health insurance expense on his personal tax return?
