Without seeing your son, I cannot tell you when the defect will close. I can say, however, that it sounds as if the defect is significantly limiting the amount of blood flow going through it, which is good for him. In the end, it is more important that the defect be restrictive like this than actually having the defect close. It may close by the time he is one year of age, or it may not. But, we do have plenty of older patients who have residual VSDs that are restrictive that have no problems.
