This is very common with little boys of this age. It may be difficult to change this habit quickly, but one way is to take him to the toilet regularly so that he does not get to the stage when he is so desperate. Try a reward system using a star chart. If he uses the toilet regularly give him a star on a chart and tell him that if he can get three stars in a row he will get a reward, something small but something that he likes. Then add a day each time before his next reward, 4 stars then 5 stars and so on.
