Hi, thank you for reaching out.
Reading is a skill to be developed independently for each child and is an integrated part of their learning and development. There is no universal rules about when should a child start learning reading. If a child develops his/her kinetic skills, emotional skills and social skills at an early stage they will better be able to develop higher literacy skills in subsequent years.
Considering the age of your son, it may be advisable to start some casual learning on basic literacy and numeracy skills, such as the alphabet and numbers.
