You are saying no hot water flow not that the water is no longer hot right?

Depends on what he took apart...and we are assuming he didn't just leave the supply valve turned off.Assuming the valve is on then it sounds like a dislodged washer in that valve or possibly the washer on the stem (assuming it's a conventional faucet design).

I suggest disassembling whatever he took apart before and checking for loose washers or any other blocking item.

In a water panic, you turn things off that you would normally not touch, so retrace your steps and turn back on the hot water supply from the water heater, or the stop under the sink.
