Shy Lawnmower Blenny

Is it normal for a lawnmower blenny to hide for 2 weeks? He's alive, and he seems to be moving around the back of the tank, eating algae off the back glass - but, in two weeks I've never seen him. He has never ventured out to the front of the rocks. I wasn't under the impression that these fish were shy. Anyone have similar experience?

Sadly, I do have tons of algae on my glass (fighting PO4) so he might just be happy in his little cave eating all the food he desires. Just wondering when I'll see him.

My lawnmower rarely comes to the front of the tank. He likes to hang out in the back and hide in little crevises in the rocks. I am sure he is ok.
