Hello there

I need information/advice regarding the citizenship application of my 5-year-old son. We, the family of three, are eligible to apply for citizenship in the month of July 2019 except my son who will be eligible in six months. So I want to know-

1. Should we apply separately?
2. Should we wait another six months, until December, my son to be eligible and apply all together?
3. Are there any difficulties if the 5-year old boy applies alone after the parents?
4. What are the points in favour or against?

Thanks
