White tongue common: The tongue is known to have many variations with pigmenting, size, appearance, & not always due to disease. Causes of a tongue that looks white include: lichen planus (responds to steroids), white sponge nevus (familial, benign, permanent), smoker's leukoplakia (2% risk of cancer, needs biopsy), hairy leukoplakia (due to epsteinbarr virus), warts (due to papillomavirus), "thrush" (rx antifungals).
Nothing serious: Most commonly a yellow tongue is caused when the papilla on the tongue become enlarged and food and bacteria are trapped. This can be treated by brushing your tongue or using a tongue scrapper. Smoking can cause your tongue to be yellowish. However if the white of your eyes or your skin is also, yellow then the concern is jaundice and you need to see your doctor.

Tongue cancer: He should be evaluated by a head and neck cancer surgeon. The surgeon can do a physical exam, biopsies, and order the appropriate scans that may need to be done. Some questions to ask are: what kind of cancer is it, how is it treated, what to expect after treatment, and how advanced is it. I wish your father the best.
Nonspecific: Tongue coating is very nonspecific and sometimes related to digestive issues, but on many occasions there is no pathology. I wouldn't be concerned about it if you have no symptoms. Use your toothbrush to wipe it away. Your dentist may have more advice for you.
Maybe thrush (fungus): The tongue is known to have many variations with pigmenting, size, appearance, & not always due to disease. Causes of tongue that looks patchy include: lichen planus (responds to steroids), white sponge nevus (familial, benign, permanent), smoker's leukoplakia (2% risk of cancer, needs biopsy), hairy leukoplakia (due to epsteinbarr virus), warts (due to papillomavirus), "thrush" (rx antifungals).
Jaundice: Natural pigmented chemicals can turn the tongue colors ranging from yellow to black. This can cause the tongue to take on an overall yellow discoloration. Although this is the most common cause of a yellow tongue, occasionally a more serious health problem such as jaundice can cause the tongue to turn yellow. Jaundice can indicate an undiagnosed liver or blood problem so see a doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
