A while ago I rooted my friends phone then eventually he wanted the phone stock so I made it stock but I forgot to close the bootloader. So I just recently locked his bootloader but everynow and then his phone bootloops or has small bugs. Is it safe to use twrp, erase everything then flash the OnePlus3 stock latest firmware from OnePlus website then lock?

I know people would mention to use the msm tool but I've never had any luck getting my device to show. Even with the OnePlus 6.

Yes, you can. But flash the entire ROM, not the firmware only. The stock ROM contains the firmware also. Boot into the ROM first to ensure that everything is working correctly before locking the bootloader.
