An enlarged heart is a vague term but yes it is always a concern. Since this is your daughter's boyfriend, I must assume that he is relatively young. If this is correct he most likely has a congenital cardiomyopathy. And as this may be transmitted to his children, there is a need for proper evaluation - for your daughter's boyfriend, and his future (possibly your grandchildren) children.
