Don't think it's the Western grip. Plenty of people use a Western grip and don't get blisters.
When was the last time he changed the grip/over grip on his racket? An old grip/over grip could be too slippery and cause the blister. Maybe try differents overgrips. I like gamma hi-tech. Others swear on tourna-grip.
Also, if he's a growing boy, double check to see if his 4 3/8 grip is too small for his hand.
