Dear *****ient, the metallic taste is due to alterations of the oral acid by modifying its ph, this can occur due to the following conditions, smokers, use of medication as antiparasitic or antibiotics, liver alterations, alterations in gastritis and gastro esophageal reflux.
in his case it is due to his disorder of acid and reflux that I consider should be evaluated since gastric acid gases from the stomach rise through his esophagus until his mouth generates this alteration of the oral ph irritating the sensibility and giving that metallic taste,
Consideration should be given to taking some medication to control reflux such as Domperidone and to improve feeding in order to control gastritis and reflux
