If you take a break from weight lifting, do your muscles become smaller?

My brother has been lifting weights 3 days a week for the last 10 weeks

If he takes a break next week, would his muscles stay the same size or go smaller?

He wants to take a week off then carry on lifting

    A little bit but if natural muscle, it won't be a lot and he'll gain it back fast
