I would start with taking comparison X-rays of both feet. If that was inconclusive, then either a diagnostic ultrasound or MRI.

I am going to go out on a limb and guess that he may have a sesamoid problem. Without examining him, I am guessing. Depending on the severity, treatment can range from a dancer's pad to immobilization in a cast brace.
