I would get him to take the picture to his local garden centre there if I was him, I'll be intrigued to know what it is but agree it may be the start of a flower, please keep us informed about the findings.

Could be Agave stricta or Yucca rostrata. If Agave it will die after flowering.

Hi, I agree with Agave stricta, common name, hedgehog agave, Derek.
