My son is 15 and he is going out with a girl at the age of 13 I don't know what to do or say to him . She is very mature and looks older but people are saying things and he needs some advice.

You do realize they are only 2 years apart, right? That's ridiculously common. My parents aree 5 years apart. My godparents are 5 years apart. Yet today, if a 20 year old is seen with a 15 year old, he's considered a pedophile?
Back in the old days, 30 year old guys would get married to 15 year old girls. It was considered perfectly normal. That only reason I think that's changed, is because of sex. Because a 15 year old girl is much more prone to screwing up and getting pregnant than an older woman.
With kids these days having no regards for what sex actually means, and losing their virginity when before even reaching 15 years of age, I understand why some parents would be alarmed by their child getting into a relationship at that stage. But you have to understand that dating does not equal sex, though it's hard to take that out of the equation, especially when it's on a teenager's mind a great deal of the time. I guess it'll depend on how well you've taught them.
Anyways, to answer your question, I think anything within 5 years can be considered normal. Anything over that, is possible, although I would consider it unusual.1
