After a fight if a man insists on being left alone, is it a good idea to check in once in a while or just let him have his time and come to you? If we don't speak for a few weeks, will that make him miss me or forget me?

If someone says, "I need something" and it is a legitimate request for their health, then you should give that to them. Failure to abide by it is a violation of their boundary and means you are a boundary violator, which is bad behavior.
What can be done is to establish expectations. It isn't fair for someone to say..."leave me alone... indefinitely" without expectation... while in a relationship. It is fair to ask, "I do want to know what is going on or where you are at, when will you contact me? I respect your need for space, but I do want to know what to expect" It isn't fair to ask me to wait forever. If they say 2 months, then it is two months.. You can ask for something else, but you are just pissing them off more... If they don't respond in short (and I'd do that via voice call ideally), then you got your answer and you are done or they are incapacitated.
