Hello, my name is Greg.
If nonnegative integer coefficients, the number of
such points is
(1/2)*(ab + a + b + 2 + gcd(a,b))
If meant positive integer coefficients, the number of
such points is
(1/2)*(ab - a - b + gcd(a,b))

Can you prove it?

Not without extensive working through the problem which would go above and beyond the price point of this question.
