My son has been looking at adult content on his iPhone with a certain app, and so I deleted the app. But he can just go back into the app store and re-download it whenever he wants. Is there a way I can block this app from ever being downloaded again?

I know for sure that you can block the App Store from being open (it'll act like there is no App Store installed).
To do this, go to "General" (in settings). Go to the "Restrictions". And deselect which ever you want (which will most likely be "Installing Apps" in your scenario). Now, you won't even be able to see the App Store. Whenever your son wants to get an app, you could install it for him, and then disable the permissions that let you install/browse the App Store's Apps.

I would say either take the phone away from him and explain why you are taking it away, or the simple solution would be just cut off service from the phone and make sure he can't get on your wifi network. You also can togle an option on his iPhone that will make it so he can't download any apps rated over a certain rating. You can find this togle option by going to Settings, general, restrictions, Then enter a password that you will remember but he doesn't know, go to Apps, then deselect 17+ apps.

Bing is not an app with adult things in it. It is a harmless search engine. Inappropriate apps have a 17+ rating where Bing has a 4+ rating. If your son has an iPhone, I am assuming he is over the age of 4. Bing is the same as google and yahoo.your son is not doing anything wrong.
