Herpes zoster?: If the blisters are all over the head and only in sun-exposed areas (e.g. not in the hair), then maybe related to sun exposure. But if localized to one side or the other, i.e. no blisters across the midline, then herpes zoster (shingles) is a good bet. He should see a doctor ASAP: helpful treatment is available but must be started early for maximum effect.
