Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

Having the same surname does not automatically indicate a familial relationship of some kind, BTW, and I know this from first-hand experience. I was one of three kids with the last name of Elmer in my high school and I am not related to either of the other kids with that surname in any way.

The similarity in powers could suggest some type of familial connection between Scott and Alex, but that doesn't mean that there HAS to be, or that said connection has to be direct.
if its not parents, but instead just the same parent (most likely the father, since its been suggested that the x gene comes from the father side) its not that far fetch for the same guy to have of had to given two kids up, 2 decades apart.... I mean he could've gotten his girl pregnant back when they were teens (that they had to give up), then later as an adult settle down got married had another kid but had to give him up as well for whatever reason (maybe to hidden his mutant gene that be based on/ or even the memory of having to give up his first son was to much for him, idk)
