Yes, you must file by mail to claim him as a dependent.  You will also need to file an amended income tax return for him to make sure the box is checked that someone can claim him as a dependent.

since he checked the box, you are REJECTED for some other reason.

some reasons can be fixed and others can't.  File by mail is the simplest solution.
