According to the new "Annotated Edition" of the Siddur Tehillas Hashem, a Bar Mitzvah bachur should get his first aliya either on Shabbos Mincha time, Monday, Thursday, or Rosh Chodesh.

I assume that the source is from Sefer Haminhagim where it says either Monday, Thursday or Shabbos Mincha time. It does not mention Rosh Chodesh.

What is the source of note in the Tehillas Hashem siddur that one could get his first aliya on Rosh Chodesh?

The second line of your source in Sefer HaminHagim mentions Rosh Chodesh

But that's talking about the father saying Baruch Shepetarani - which doesn't necessarily have to be at the same time as the bar mitzvah boy's first aliyah. –  Alex Oct 2 '11 at 22:18
