    Following the standard approach, you can enqueue your block custom styles iteratively like this. Place your block custom style sheet in /assets/css/blocks/ directory. For example, if you want to override the Post Author block Avatar and content style, create /assets/css/blocks/post-author.css and add your custom styles for the respective classes there. After that, add the following snippet to your after_setup_theme callback function which is, twentytwentytwo_support() in this example.

    		function twentytwentytwo_support() {
    			/*
    			 * Load additional block styles.
    			 */
    			    $styled_blocks = ['post-author'];
    			foreach ( $styled_blocks as $block_name ) {
    				$args = array(
    					'handle' => "twentytwentytwo-$block_name",
    					'src'    => get_theme_file_uri( "assets/css/blocks/$block_name.css" ),
    				);
    				wp_enqueue_block_style( "core/$block_name", $args );
    			}
    		}

    Finally, include this in your functions.php file.

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'twentytwentytwo_support' );

    post-author.css for your reference, I would like the avatar to be round and the Author name centered inline with the Avatar.

    .wp-block-post-author__avatar img {
    border-radius: 50%;
    }

    .wp-block-post-author__name {
    line-height: 2.5em;
    }
