Biracial baby hair (cut or not to cut)

My son is 9 months old and has relatively straight hair except the end of the strands are one big half 'c' if that makes any sense. My sons is Half African American, 1/8th Japanese and white, and a quarter Native American. I really hope he has curly hair. I have mostly straight hair. So my hopes of having a kid with curly hair would be amazing :) (I've always wanted curly hair myself) anyways.
His hair grows out almost to the point where it's a mullet. And then falls out. And then grows back in again. When he sweats it get curlier then normal.
I've heard so many things. Wait as long as you can (1 or two years of age) to cut it. Some babies got curly hair after their first cut. And some didn't get it until 18 months. I need to "train" the curls he has now so they grown in curl. So I'm just really stuck on what to do. Cut? Not cut? That is the question... And what is everyone else's experience with biracial babies:)

this is what I would do go back to your school years, and do a Punnett Square. see who all has curly hair and who has straight hair and add up your percent and see what you come up with. Hope this works.
