I dont know...i would think his symptoms would dictate that. Some improve a lot after a few weeks, others a few months. I've never been on it, but from what I read, there is no set time. Plus while tapering out of a bad flare, there can be many increases and decreases to get things more steady.
He isn't in a severe flare or in extreme discomfort, which is good. Doesn't seem it would be very long.
Imdo, however, suggest you put out a separate thread specifically about your son on prednisone. There are many who have experience and great knowledge to be able to answer your questions during this time.
Looking forward to reading how he is doing.
