I know a writer, who claims to have developed his own style of poetry. This new style looks a bit odd to me but he seems to spread it all over and encourages others to use it in their poems. How do I validate that this new form of poetry actually makes sense? Are there any parameters to judge?

There is no global poetry board that certifies new poetry forms, nor is there any set criteria for the "validity" of a form. If your friend enjoys his new form, and if other people do too, I'm not sure why he would need your approval or validation (or what he would do with it if he got it).
A poet writes with the full artifice of language.
Academics and critics seek connections and dice poems into categories.
At birth, a poem in an unfamiliar style is a poem. A collection of these becomes a voice. If copied by others, a genre.
