I hope this information is helpful. Among native English speakers, I rarely hear the phrase, "He is more good looking". I usually hear and I always say, "He is better looking". You may be grammatically correct either way depending on the context of the sentence, but if you want to sound more native, I would say: "He is good looking, he is better looking, or he is the best looking". This would apply to the U.S.A and the U.K. English speakers.
