One way to say «must have» is «il doit avoir». there are other constructions, however.

Bonjour Neil ! To express "must have + past participle" as in "must have done"..., you will use Le Passé Composé of "devoir" = "a dû + infinitive" "Ça a dû coûter cher." (It must have cost a lot) "Il a dû se sentir mal à l'aise. (He must have felt uneasy.) See: https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/conjugate-voir-boire-croire-savoir-lire-taire-avoir-in-le-passe-compose-conversational-past I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
