Please talk to school councellor or well-being officer. If there is no one go to your local gp or community centre councellor before things escalate further..
On top of the other advice do you have your own story or know it any other male who could share with him their own story of the difficulties of that age, struggles with peers, feeling alone, unhappy etc? I find talking yo kids about your own or others experiences really help., even him feeling to pull away can be am experience.. or other kids at the school.
