You have to mention him in your applications. What stage of the process are you in? USCIS or NVC.

Is my son automatically my derivative beneficiary under my petition (f2a)? He is one year old.

Or do i have to do anything to make him my derivative beneficiary?

If his name was included in the i130 as your child then yes he becomes your derivative automatically.

However, if he was born after you submitted the i130, then his name is nowhere in the petition. You must submit a letter (via email) to NVC stating that you want to add him into your F2A petition. Include a scanned copy of his NSO birth certificate. If his name was not included in the i130, either by mistake or whatever, you do the same procedure.

If your case is still with USCIS pending approval, then you have to wait until your case is forwarded to NVC.
