If we leave it to the child, the child will choose a mobile due to the visual effect. It is unhealthy and impacts cognition, vision, sleep etc. Enroll him in games. Make it compulsory to attend at least one outdoor class for a year. It takes a year to like something or not like. You will have to take the time and effort to take him outdoors in the evenings - maybe to a park nearby or for a short walk in the neighbourhood. Invite his friends over and organise games. Any indoor game is better than playing with the mobile.
