If I have a higher boarding position than my 12 year old son can he board with me?

I believe that if you want to board with your son, you would have to board with his position.

If I boarded before him could I save him a seat?

As long as you are not saving an Exit row seat, you are usually OK saving a single seat next to you.  It is not cool if you save an Exit row seat, as people pay extra for that opportunity.  There is an unwritten code of seat saving, and that is a no-no.  Besides, if he is 12, he can't sit in that exit row anyways.  If you take a row in the back half of the plane and save the middle seat for your kid, people will move on and it is not a problem.

You would have to board with him. As for saving a seat, Southwest does not have a policy for or against it.
