I feel like this totally depends on the son's age. If he's still a kid, he probably just found out about periods and misunderstood. Or maybe he simply found a pad somewhere and was curious as to what it was. If he's at an age where he's supposed to know all about periods and pads, it's a bit harder to explain!

Pads are useful for:
1: butt sweat which tends to be more of a guy problem
2: preventing shit stains - because who follows up on kids with their wiping skills as they get older
3: soaking up blood spotting from bleeding hemmorhoids which is surprisingly common especially if it's untreated

Talk to your kid in a non-judgemental way. He might be just curious or there could be an actual reason for it.

And you responded to this by posting about it on here? Try to talk to him about it in a non-judgmental way. You didn't specify age but kids (even teenagers) can be curious. Maybe he was bored and just wanted to see what it felt like. Maybe he's questioning his gender identity and wishes he actually did have a use for pads. Maybe he was sweating a lot and wanted to wear one for the absorbency. There are a lot of possible explanations for it, but he isn't hurting anyone. It's really not that big a deal.

Or they talked about it and resolved the issue but thought it might be a funny situation to put on FML? It's not like they posted the full name + photo

Actually, a lot of trans women experience dysphoria about not having menstrual cycles. Goes with the dysphoria about not having ovaries, a uterus, and other related equipment for most of them.
