он больной? is wrong, it it?

    No, «Он больно́й?» is not technically wrong, but this exact wording is often used as an ableist insult, so you probably want to avoid it.

    You could use a version with a verb, «Он боле́ет?» 'Is he ill?', it doen’t have any unwanted connotations.

    "Нездоров" - "unhealthy".
