Sheetrock


He probably needed to sand it little more and also feather out the mud work wider with a 12" knife. If it's already been painting sanding the area will not work. He'll just need to re mud first, then sand, mud and repeat if needed. Hold a bright light to the side of the repair and that should help you see where the humps or indentions are for mudding or sanding.
