I have pictures taken of my son when he was 16-17 years old. However, he just turned 18. Wondering if we should use minor or adult release form?

I am not 100% sure, but an adult MR worked for me.
I did a shoot with a teenage model a few years ago. I shot with her again a few months ago. She is now an adult. I asked to sign a MR for the last shoot. It was an adult MR, and all nine agencies I submit to accepted it.

There is a line asking for the "Date of signing the release".
You need to see if the model was a major or minor on that date and do this accordingly.

The release deals with his age now, at time of signing, not at time of shoot.  Use an adult release and list date of shoot accordingly.

I would err on the side of caution with this one. at time of shooting that model could not have approved those images, it's an interesting question: do they now have adult control over their past images? will my own children, upon turning 18, demand all <18yo images of them at various sites be removed? if they can sign for their junior self then surely they can also question the signed release?

I would say they can't sign for their <18 self. but if you got away with it, and you think there's no drama in the future, then go for it.

Nope.  Just like a model can't come back and change their mind, neither could your kid.  It is the persons likeness they are signing for and either a parent signs if the person is a minor at time of signing, or the model. It has nothing to do with time of shoot.
