    Sentence2:
    He still had unasked questions and wanted me to help him. This is the usual word order, with the adjective before the noun.

    Sentence1:
    He still had questions (that were) unasked and wanted me to help him. This is okay too, though it is much less common. The words in brackets can be understood to be present.

    Thanks
