all you have to do is to add an param:

/* user commnet count */
function get_comment_count( $user_ID ) {
    global $wpdb;

    $count = $wpdb->get_var(
        $wpdb->prepare( "SELECT COUNT(comment_ID) FROM {$wpdb->comments} WHERE user_id = %d ", $user_ID )
    return $count;
<?php echo get_comment_count( <USER_ID> ); ?>

PS. I've added some proper escaping in your query also, so this code is not vulnerable any more...

But you can also use...

WordPress already has its own way of doing it, so you don't have to reinvent the wheel... You can use:

$count = get_comments( array(
    'user_id' => <USER_ID>, // include only comments by this user
    'count' => true // it will return only count of comments and not the comments
) );
echo $count;
  • thank you very much. but is it possible that <USER_ID> get automaticly in author page. because i dont want to insert user id manuallu. thank for attention Commented Feb 19, 2020 at 9:50

    Yes. If you're placing this code in author.php (author's archive) you can use get_queried_object_id() to get the ID of author. Commented Feb 19, 2020 at 9:51
