My son is 29. He locks up himself in his room when his younger brother enters the house. Is this hatred or what. What should we do?

I wouldd consult with your family doctor and get the name of a good family therapist in your area to get to the bottom of this issue.

Have you tried asking both of them separately about what is wrong? Don't be afraid to ask, they are both living in your house, you have a right to know if something is going on.
Dr. Ed Friedlander
Both physicians have given good advice. Something happened between the two of them. Evidently neither of them wants to talk about it. It may be nothing more than a single critical comment. I hope your family is otherwise able to function in such a way as to build everyone up -- if so, you're ahead of many others.

In brief: Cause of concern?!

With limited information provided its hard to answer, however if this behavior is new it needs to be investigated.
You can have a frank talk with him about the reason behind locking self in his brothers presence. It is more more concerning if either one of them have mental or physical disability.
