Firefish belly is in-dented

I gave the tank my usual inspection when I got in from work to
find that my Purple Firefishs belly in in-dented. He has been fine and ate this morning

I have had him for 4 months

it looks just like his underside was pushed in a little.
Like if you squeezed a piece of clay with your finger.

Other than that He is acting fine

Any ideas whats wrong?

Thanks

It sounds to me like he was hungry! My tang looked like that when we first got him if he hadn't eaten enough. That's exactly how I described it!
