Any help would be great. He is lifting weights but that doesn't seem to be helping that area.
This is actually a fairly common problem in men carrying extra bodyfat or who used to carry extra bodyfat. Some of the fat ends up going to the nipple area of the chest, resulting in what can be described as "man boobs."
Unfortunately, spot training (training to lose fat in one specific area of the body) doesn't work. That, however, doesn't mean that you can't fix the problem.
When you burn fat, the body releases fat from all over rather than at one specific spot. This means that when he loses fat, he is going to see results all over, including his chest area. It may not happen instantly but it will happen.
Here are some articles I've written on fat-burning that may help him.
As far as weight training exercises for the chest goes, I would recommend push-ups if you are at home and/or bench presses if you have access to a gym. If you have access to an Incline Bench Press, that would be the best as increasing the size of the upper chest will diminish the appearance of the lower chest.
Also, if you have access to equipment such as dumbbells (which are great for using at home), you can perform bench presses and flyes very easily - they're both very effective exercises for working the chest.
The Barbell Bench Press is going to be one of your primary exercises.
Doing the weight exercises won't cause him to lose fat in the chest area but they will help build and strengthen the muscle in the chest area. Building the pecs (especially the upper pecs) while losing fat will help to decrease the appearance of "man boobs."
