      While listening to Spanish speakers, I’ve heard it said like this:

      ¿Puede ayudar me?

      Or, familiarly (a friend):

      ¿Puedes ayudar me?

      What is the significance of the difference?

      ¡Cuidado! You can indeed say ¿puede ayudarme? (formal) or ¿puedes ayudarme? (informal), but just make sure that the ‘me’ is tagged onto the infinitive. There’s no difference between ¿me puede ayudar? and ¿puede ayudarme? They both mean the same thing, although some speakers may favour one over the other.
