Okay, I tried a few things with the tools I have (DPP), but I know there's more possible to fix with the dynamic range, but I can't get it. Anyway, here's the picture (and the RAW file URL)

So, what can I do to get his face less blown out? Any ideas for me to try?

Here is a very crude effort in DPP, just cloning skin tones and hair over the blown out areas. It would need a lot more care and effort to do a good job but this shows the potential. I've lost the shape in his left cheek, so his face looks pushed to one side. The hair is also very badly done, and I didn't bother with the top of the ear, but you get the idea.

Well, with a face that blown minus whale go high key.
Crop him onto a white background do some fancy pants editing.

If you cant fix it cover it up with stylish!
