English term or phrase: juegos de palabras "man y son"
Tengo un juego de palabras en inglés que no sé como reproducir en español.
A second son? Or a second man?
Es un mensaje clandestino de un espía y hay una confusión al respecto.
Gracias por adelantado!!

niño / hombre


Explanation:
Una posibilidad - como a veces se usa "niño" en sentido genérico, pero como implica jovencito, la confusión entonces sería si es jovencito o sencillamente un adulto

niño se refiere solo a crios (chicos pequeños) mientras que chico puede resultar mas confuso - creo que es lo que tu buscas :-)
