I had just posted a comment for B Hesjedal within the profile of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Scott-21761
I had briefly explained this situation and the only way to complete the merge process that requires his opening up the restricted profile.
The only other suggestion/recommendation I can provide you with is to please be a bit patient (just a few weeks or so) to await his response/action.
If nothing happens, the last option for you is to report this to the WikiTree Administrator as a non-responsive PM.
Good Luck! :-)
