 Re: Yamaha C100 Mouthpiece?

I would second the Behn Overture. It's a mouthpiece I would prefer to use for a paid gig against many of the hand finished rubber mouthpieces out there.

I'd also recommend having a private teacher for your son to get clarinet specific weekly instruction. This is invaluable and will put him way ahead of the game. Also, a competent private teacher will be able to make recommendations for equipment. When players are as young as your son, the process of trying things for themselves can easily lead them down the wrong road, as they aren't developed enough to make equipment decisions in an educated way, particularly from a pedagogical perspective.

All Behn mouthpieces are designed to be efficient, reed friendly, and to promote an embouchure that is comfortable and flexible (not requiring excessive biting etc.). Getting your son started on equipment that promotes these ideas will no doubt make clarinet playing more enjoyable and make significant improvements in a shorter time (kids in particular being more likely to stick with something when they see consistent improvement).
