Combinatorics is a branch of mathematics, like analysis or algebra.

The adjective "combinatorial" usually describes some argument or result derived through this field, compare with calling a result "analytical" or "algebraic".

I think he was asking about combinatoric as an adjective .. i.e. ... a combinatoric approach.

I am pretty sure there is no difference.
