|English translation:We say either "Does he have" or "Has he"|
"Has he" is an old-fashioned way of forming a question (at least in the US) with the verb "to have" in the present tense. It has the verb and pronoun the way you would expect.
"Does he have" and "Do you have" use the auxiliary verb "does" plus "have".
"Do" gets used with the 1st and 2nd person pronouns; "does" with the 3rd person.
Do I/we have any bananas?
Do you have any bananas?
Does he/she have any bananas?
Does it have a name?
Have I/we any oranges today?
Have you any oranges today?
Has he/she any oranges?
Has it a name?
In common usage in the US, we only use the "Do/does" construction in writing and in conversation.
Hope it helps!:)
