    First, know that I'm not an accountant, nor am I a tax attorney.

    But, your situation seems pretty clear that the two of you aren't married, so you wouldn't be able to claim him as a dependent, regardless of your living arrangements.

    In order to claim someone as a dependent, there has to be a legal relationship between the two of you and they have to rely upon you for support.
