Goby mouth problem?

I just got this yellow watchman goby yesterday, and when I got home
from work today, his mouth was all white and swollen? Any ideas on
what this is and how I can fix it?

Most likely a bacterial infection I may not be correct I would wait and see if someone else chimes in but that is what I think. You could medicate to be on safe side. Not sure what else you have in your tank

He might have hurt himself from trying to burrow or just 'dust' from the crushed coral. He really needs a sand bottom so he can burrow

had a clown with the same thing in it's mouth. I noticed it the second day i got it. was healthy and swimming...wanted to eat but couldn't. got to a point where I thought he was a gonner because he would lie on it's side listless. well after a week it recovered. He is still in my tank nice and healthy.

here is a pic of how it looked...
