Chlapec, kluk, hoch
Explanation:
"Chlapec" is the official, standard translation of the word and is normally used in official documents and proper speech.

In daily colloquial conversation, the colloquial form "kluk" is usually the preferred choice and is widely used.

"Hoch" is a slightly outdated, bookish version of the word.
