Family Question: What do I call him...?

My DS has a cousin who is 3 years old (he's my BIL's son). His ex (who I remain friends with still, mostly we talk thru fb bc she lives in another state) is now married and has another little boy who is about 2 months younger than my DS.

My question is: what should DS call him if they ever should meet?

I once had a stepcousin (my aunt's ex-husband had a son from another relationship. She has a son through him and that makes him half-brothers). So, I still call him a cousin bc i've known him many years.

Many thanks!

Cousin, I have a few like this. They are just my cousins there is no reason to say step cousin.

You'd call that child Cousin, if there is love for that child, the relationship (step, bio, adopted or fostered) makes no difference, family is family.

cousin - DD calls DH's niece cousin even though it's by association only (marriage) just like DH's niece calls me aunt.

I think he should be considered a cousin, but that's just me.
