Absent father reappeared then vanished again

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

Hi everyone, hoping someone can help me.
My 16 year old sons father has been absent for his entire life and popped up again 2 weeks ago. I advised my son to get his fathers side of the story before deciding if he wanted a relationship, my son did just that and in reply was told it was moving too fast and that they needed to take a break from each other. My son is now emotionally shut down, lashing out at me and has locked himself in his bedroom. Does anyone have any advice on how I can help him.
P.s. My son struggles with emotions when everthing is straight forward and can't verbalise how he is feeling.
