Thanks for your question. I will try to help.
As you had not worked in the UK exercising your treaty rights for 5 years before you son was born, he would not have acquired UK citizenship automatically at birth.
However, under s1(3) of the British nationality Act 1981 a child can apply to be registered as a UK citizen using form MN1 if their parents become “settled” in the UK after their birth and if the application is made before the child becomes an adult.
So, provided you can show that you have obtained PR then your child will first have to register as a UK citizen using form MN1. After they have received their certificate of registration they can then apply for a passport.
I would suggest that probably the safest way of doing this would be for you to apply for confirmation of your PR first, so that you can then easily show that you have PR for when you apply for your son to be registered as a UK citizen.
