There are many commercial tools are available in the market which compares the models and highlights the changes graphically.
Most popular tool is SimDiff. You can download trail from here.
Another tool is ecDiff.

You should probably look at DiffPlug too. It does full-folder comparison with text, images, and Simulink models.

TAB's answer is right. But I wanted to mention: if the models are both simple and you know what change to look for (i.e. what term refers to a model component that you would expect would differ), the *.mdl files are ASCII files that you could look at with any text editor; you could search for the terms associated with the change that you expect between the models.
