If it were me this is what I would do. When he asks about his father, give basic information. I would wait until he is in his 20's to go into more detail. I wouldn't bring it up. Wait for him to ask. I do think it might be information he would want to know. He might feel hurt you didn't tell him if he finds out some other way. If he asks why you didn't tell him before, tell him you wanted to wait until he was old enough to know who he was as a young man, and see that what his father did is no reflection on who he is.
