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.
