Well its a ten year old squier. perhaps it warped, or the frets are worn.

Tell him to look into truss rod adjustment. The neck is probably bent back too far, causing the strings to touch the fretboard around the 15th fret.

Maybe the frets are sticking out too much. You can shorter them by either filing them down, or tapping them down with a hammer.

Yes it's possible for frets to "lift" out of there slots, due to many things, including lemon oiling and polishing the fretboard. The wood goes weak.
Re crowning or tapping down are options.
I did have a similar problem years ago and had to actually raise the whole bridge up off the guitar body a bit. Even after lowering the saddles to suit again, I found the high end drop off of the fretboard from the 12th fret up was considerably increased which fixed the buzzing.
It's always worse when bending a string also due to the fretboard radius. I've really taken to flatter boards now
Of course if you has a "micro tilt" allen screw adjuster, that would aid in a proper set up.
Good luck.
