Usually, a witch.
A male witch is called either a witch or a warlock. The word witch is not gender specific.
While there are some male witches who do identify as a warlock, there are many who consider this a derogatory term. Some male witches identify as wizard as well. However, the term witch applies to all witches, male or female.
this is more true in modern times though, as warlock traditionally meant oath-breaker and was a terrible title to have, and in most circles it still has this meaning.

If his name's Dave, call him Dave. If it's Crispin, call him Crispin etc. You get the gist 😉
Most male practitioner's of Wicca call themselves wiccan or a witch. The term warlock is rarely used and contrary to popular belief does not mean oath breaker: not in the original Scottish definition anyway. The term wizard can be used for a male practitioner of magic but I'm not certain if wizardry has much of anything to do with the Wiccan religion.
I believe wizardry has more to do with the cunning craft. Cunning Folk in Britain were often referred to as wizards. Some still practice this art today but it is rare. The term warlock in it's original Scottish usage meant a male witch. Only later in the Old English use of the word did it come to mean oath breaker. In it's simple dictionary definition it means a male witch and can be used for a male practitioner of witchcraft, although most adherents are opposed to this. The term occult magician can also be used for a male practitioner of the magical arts. But more commonly followers of Wicca regard themselves as either wiccan or witch male and female respectively.
However I do believe that just as it is empowering for female magical practitioners to claim the word witch. It is equally as important for male practitioners to embrace terms like warlock, wizard, magician or whatever seems fit.
Although nowadays many male followers of some Pagan faiths consider themselves to be wizards. Some of them perhaps male witches.
