Is he on medications?? If so, this could be a side-effect from one of the meds. Have you checked into that?

A head injury can cause a change in taste. He needs to at least let his doctor know about this development.

I had a skull fracture in 1992. Initially I had a bad taste in my mouth a few days a month. Now it's almost every day all day long. Food tastes awful and I'm not eating as healthy as I used to. I'm looking for answers. I personally believe the bad taste for me occurs from hormonal changes and I'm going to look into this further. I'm sorry I can't give you any more info but I do know how awful this condition is.
