Yes
If he meets the height and weight requirements and he's wearing his seat belt, then you shouldn't worry so much. When I was kid we didn't wear seatbelts and there were no shoulder harnesses. And no airbags either. So cars have gotten safer.
There is no weight requirement just an age and height. He is very skinny and doesn't weigh much at all. I'm pretty sure the airbag would just crush him.
Does the airbag light go off?

It's an old car so the airbag goes off with or without someone sitting there.

Oh for gosh sake. Kids rode in the front seat for decades before this crap became a thing.

If that's the case then I would be really concerned too. Would it help if he read up on the injuries caused by children sitting up in the front seat in older cars when the airbag was deployed?

In Florida, children under 12 years old are supposed to sit in the back seat.

I don't live in Florida but I wish 12 was the age to sit up front here instead of 7
Unless it's changed since 2010 its recommended but not law far as I know. My kids are all nearly adults now so I don't worry about it.
