Hi. This might be due to congestion of the upper respiratory tract. He should take inhalation to help clear his nose and upper respiratory tract.

welcome to healthcare magic and thanks for the query,
Well, the problem is the blocked eustachian tube, it connects the throat with ears, during cold it gets blocked with increased secretions, that leads to sensation of blocked ears.

Treatment is anti allergic and decongestant drug.

Hope, it will help you.
