Can a child become a sociopath because of his parents?

I know my ex boyfriend is good but his mom is a sociopath and controls him. he is 30 years old but is constantly controlled by his mom and he is starting to become his mom. he started to control me and gaslight me and manipulate me.
Update: he doesn't seem to care about anything. when i came to hold him, it seemed foreign to him why I was helping him.
