Default First Time Kid

Going up to Lake Placid next weekend.
I have a bunch of skis my sister gave me for the kids -

My son is 7 y/o, 5' 2". Never really skied before, just fooled around
with a pair of "strap ons".

I've got 2 pairs of standard "skinny"/touring skis with 3 pin bindings
(she gave us all the old boots also).

One @ 140 cm looks like it would fit him perfectly based the "reaching
the bend in the wrist" method.

Another pair is 135 cm.

Which would be better for him to learn on?
