It depends on what kind of visa he had prior to H1B and how many days was in the USA in 2019 and possible 2018 or 2017.

If you have F1 visa, you don't exist in the US... basically you are invisible. You don't accumulate physical presence in the US for the first 5 years, provided you stay within the requirements of the visa.  For example, if I come and study and don't violate the visa requirement, I am invisible. On the other hand, if I start working in the U.S. in violation of the visa status, I am technically not covered under the visa and I should accumulate physical presence.

As you stated, in 2020 you should be able to file 1040, so the question is only for 2019. See if there is a difference in tax due or refund before you dig more.
