Very natural expression in the first one, and the composition is nice in terms of golden ratio.

One thing though, the lighting is flat, and the image lack contrast.

One thing you can do is bounced the flash off a white surface to give more direction to the light and position the subject accordingly.

In #1 his eyes look like the dead kids in the grudge. Just to dark. Pin lights in them. I totally agree with phototron with the bouncing. Stick him infront of a window or something to catch some catch lights.

In the first he is way too close to the background. i always tend to keep them at least 3 ft from the backgroun. Otherwise you get a flat image... ialso agree you need a little more lighting in the eys! handsome boy!
