butt-headed: Argue uncompromisingly, stubborn

Make one's bones: To do something criminal to earn one's own status, or respect in a group or gangs

Throw in a towel: To quit in defeat, To admit that you are defeated

A chip off the old block: Exactly like his father

An apple does not fall far from the tree: Like father, like son
