What will happen if 6 years ago when my boyfriend was 14 he came in the US using the Visa Waver Program and overstayed but left 3 years later at age 17?

I would like to know if he would be able to enter back into the US or if he would have any penalties/fines since he left as an minor? He has a Spanish passport.

He will not likely be able to use the Visa Waiver again. Did he try registering for ESTA? He will not have any official bars to entry because he left before turning 18. However, he may need to apply for a tourist visa.
