Brief Answer:
It sounds like he has duct obstruction

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for the question.

It sounds like he has obstruction of the lacrimal aka tear duct and that needs a simple procedure called syringing and probing which opens it up . I would advise you to get the same from nearby ophthalmologist.
If you have further doubts, please feel free to ask in followup.
