I am working as a frontend developer and had a new colleague joining my team. He is more experienced than me but I have more knowledge about the application we are working on.
So we are doing the code-review of each others code and I know that he is very into code-styling and being consistent in the whole application.
Now I reviewed his code and made some suggestions about some code-styling and conventions and I always gave reason why I think this is better.
He answered my suggestions basically saying that he doesn't agree and giving some examples.
I then answered his statement again using these examples and trying to explain again why I prefer it the way I suggested.
He then answered, he would like to postpone this discussion. I guess that he still doesn't agree with me and never will I guess. And I think this discussion will never come up again.
My question is how I can make him agree with me without forcing him? And what should I do when he will never agree on my points? Also I don't like that he decided to postpone this discussion. Should I ask him when we would discuss it then?
