I would email the 2nd cousin back and say “Thank you so much for your rsvp. I  thought you were responding on behalf of your father, Robert, who was also invited to the wedding. I have since discovered that not to be the case. While we would love to extend your invitation to include your son Robert, that is just not possible. We both look forward to seeing you and _____(the wife) at the wedding.”

I think once you’ve sent someone a welcome message, you’re kind of stuck with them.

If they got an invite for two, I don’t think it’s rude at all to confirm that they meant the father. If they did not, explain that the younger Robert is not invited, sorry for the misunderstanding, what would the two of you like me to put down for your entree.
