The word for "son" is oğul. "oğlu" has the 3rd person possessive suffix on it.

The hints are not personalized for every sentence :)

Is oğul irregular? I would expect to see oğulu.

Yep, there are a lot of two syllable words that drop the second vowel when you add a suffix that begins with a vowel. Other example are: şehir (city), omuz (shoulder), and ağız (mouth)
