No. Leave your dependent on your return. His income must be filed on a separate return.  You can file his w-2 by creating a new account for him. He is not required to file unless he made more than $6,300 in W-2 income or $400 in self employment income. It may be good idea to file however to get back any withholding. Be sure to select that someone can claim him as a dependent on his return.
