It depends on how you acquire your British nationaliity or citizenship.
You can refer your issue by Wikipedia:

Can he get the British Passport as well?
Depend on HOW YOU GOT YOUR BRITISH PASSPORT.
Your child would be British Oversea Citizen at birth (can become British Citizen on registration) if your British Citizenship is obtained by any mean EXCEPT by descent or from British Nationality Act 1983/1996.
Your child will NOT be British Oversea Citizen at birth if you obtain british Citizenship by descent or via British Nationality act 1983/1996 (Also know as UK Settlement plan).
Simply saying, if you (Yourselve) are born outside UK your child can only applyfor UK Citizenship if you obtain UK Citizenship by employment, marriage or serve in UK Civil services. If you do not get UK Citizenship that way, your son will not be UK Citizen
If you are born in UK yourselve, then no matter how you get your UK citizenship, you son will be UK Citizens at birth.
if your son are eligible, you can apply Citizenship for him on any UK Consulate資料來源： I am a British Citizen by descent
