Thank you for your question.
Not metal spikes, no, and the SSPCA will prosecute anyone who causes harm to animals by doing this. There are plenty of plastic and bespoke products on the market to deter cat nuisance. If he doesn't remove the metal spikes, call in the council and your local SSPCA officer.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
