It's an authentic uniform, and it's strange that it's so well tailored and the photo was taken at a studio. It looks like a surplus WW1 US Army uniform, it has some type of cap badge that doesn't appear to be an Army badge-but I can't make it out. Unless the family was wealthy enough to indulge him, I can't see them going to this much trouble as a "dress up" game. It's possible it's a scouting uniform, a messenger or a military school.
