Try moistening a clean tissue and gently use it to wipe away the crusty discharge.  Since he is squinting, you cannot be certain the eye isn't scratched...in fact, when the eye is scratched, a cat will squint and/or blink pretty much constantly.  If he's squinting longer than a few hours, you should have him examined for a possible scratch on the eye or even the presence of a foreign body under the eyelids.
