From Dave, child's age 10

I have 4 boys all normal weight, but now my youngest one, 12 is getting fat. I just noticed it when we went swimming yesterday. His stomach was jiggling all over. But the worst was when he sat down, his new belly folded down over his waist. I couldn't believe it! His brothers also noticed and were all making fun of him. Later that night I mentioned something to him and he got all upset at me for noticing. I made him get on the scale and could not believe he put on 15 pounds since his last doctors appointment which was 2 months ago. He now weighs 118 and is only 4'11. What should I do???
