This could represent somet type of vertigo such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. I suggest he sees a neurologist or ENT doctor tht specializes in the treatment of vertigo. You can also have him seen by an ophthalmologist - but usually this is an inner ear or possibly a cerebellar (balance area of brain) problem. If inner ear problem then exercises can help sometimes. Also he needs to have his hearing checked to rule out assocaited ear problems.
