Brief Answer:
Don't worry / get him examines & have an ECHO

Detailed Answer:
Dear friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

This shows RBBB (Right Bundle Branch Block)
ECG should not be read in isolation / it should be correlated with the total clinical picture / It will be ideal, if we could compare with previous ECG

This could be an incidental finding / a disease of the conduction system (nerve) of the heart / enlargement of the right ventricle (lower chamber on the right) and so on

An ECHOcardiogram is routinely done to see the heart valves (Mitral Valve Prolapse) / heart muscle (Cardiomyopathy) and heart function (Ejection fraction, wall motion abnormality)…

In an asymptomatic person, detected on routine screening like this – is usually a variation / seen in many normal people / no cause for concern / and in most cases no need to follow up
The treating doctor alone can suggest further based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Good luck
