How can I fix this?

We took in a male cat (3 months old) last November. Things have been great except the occasional times where my dad would irritate him and play rough with him, like yanking his ears. Recently he started hissing at my dad, and now whenever he sees him he runs in between the couches or under a bed, or he curls up into a ball close to the ground and makes these low-pitched sighs that sound like he is having an asthma attack. Nowadays he'll barely come out to see any of us. This really breaks my heart and I don't know what to do. Please help
