I wouldnt do a boys ear but i think you should just look at your son and get that side done that looks right to you. I dont mean the right side,i mean whatever side you feel looks best. And if your son is old enough then let him choose himself. Incase its your son you are talking about.

Years ago, I think boys tended to get just the left ear done... the convention being that a right ear piercing on a man was a signal that he was gay.
I don't think it matters any more though. Here I see young boys with either side done, or with both sides done... although the left might be more common still. A kid in our oldest daughter's class got one of his ears done when she was in grade two, and in the class picture it looks like it's the left side.
