Default Flat Feet! Help! :-)

Hi everyone
My 7 year old son who has big tennis dreams ( like many kids his age) has flat feet. Will it be impossible for him to reach a high level in tennis or could it be corrected? If any of you have experience with this issue, I would greatly appreciate feedback before I take him to a podiatrist!

From what I've gathered (google), some say jumping rope at this age can help to create an arch and ortho inserts could correct it since the bones haven't fully ossified ..
.
Thanks in advance!
