Sounds like it could be thrush...or strep throat.
You should see a doctor to rule this out.
Strep throat can lead to meningitis...which is very dangerous.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

White patches are common in many throat  infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which your son had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and ask your son to gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
