Kris,

If your dad was messing with the grout lines by moving the tiles then he broke the bond between the tile and the thinset. And if he broke the bond then the tiles will be loose and not "cemented" to the backerboard.

Stop your dad from messing with the tile and get with the installer b/4 any more work is completed. If you don't the installer will say "you" broke the bond of the tile with the thinset (cement). Also, do you not know how much the installer is charging you because they haven't told you yet or because they told somebody else in the house (dad, husband, significant other, ......)?
