Featherfin catfish

Just got a featherfin cat. After acclimating him to the new tank I released him and he swam down to the bottom. Within 5 minutes he was up at the surface and has stayed there for about 15 minutes now. Hes swimming slowly but at times looks like he's trying to swim fast and can't. I washed my hands and stuck my finger in there. He allowed me to touch him without really trying to avoid it. Is this normal behavior for them or should I take him back to my LFS?

Sorry I think I posted this in the wrong forum. He's upside down at the surface now. Still moving and all that, just swimming upside down.
