Is it better for my son to wear "regular" indoor boots while playing on turf or actual turf boots? When I say turf boots, I'm not talking about artificial grass boots.
Children don't weigh enough or generate enough force for turf to put that kind of strain on their joints and ligaments. It's more of a concern for fully grown individuals who've had multiple knee operations like me.
I highly discourage wearing regular indoor boots (assuming you mean flats like for a true futsal court) on turf, the likelihood of injury due to slipping is more of a risk than wearing FG on turf.
FG, AG, TF either way he'll be fine. Stay away from SG and avoid IC if you can.
