Please use the sample code as reference.


<apex:page standardController="Account">
              <apex:pageBlockSectionItem helpText="Put your helptext here">
                  <apex:outputLabel value="Name"></apex:outputLabel>
                  <apex:inputField value="{!Account.Name}"/>

 Please let me know if there is any issue.



             You can show custom help text adjacent to field label name using below code snippet.


    <apex:panelGrid columns="2">

                    <apex:inputText value="{!name_hm6}"/>

                    <img src="/s.gif" alt="Help" class="helpIcon" title="Use the “Value” field to provide the text that will appear as a link in the Header Menu in the specified position. "/>
