In brief: Diet, sex less often

Sperm count drops within each ejaculation if you are having sex very often.
The absolute number of sperm produced is fairly staedy, thus very frequent ejaculation leads to fewer sperm in the semen. Ecaculating once or twice a week will increase the count. Don't smoke and avoid xs alcohol. A health diet probaly helps as does avoidance of of running marathons or xs exercise.

In brief: Depends on cause

Before one can improve one's sperm count, it is important to determine the etiology of the low sperm count if possible.
If a cause is determined, this will go a long way in determining how to improve it. Thus, the first step is to follow-up with a urologist for an evaluation, which may include history, physical exam, hormonal evaluation, scrotal ultrasound, etc.
