Depends on the skates as well. If he's using high-end skates it's probably a good idea not to use the last eyelet. Those skates are very hard and will hinder necessary freedom in ankle movement. Most kids under 8 are not able to tighten the laces properly.
My son skated in low-end/mid-range skates until the age of 11. He was able to lace them on its own since he was 5 and would lace them up to the top.
Since the age of 11, he has been skating in high-end skates and prefers not to lace the last eyelet.
