Puffer with air???

I just bought a porpcupine Puffer and the guy at the lfs netted him. After i got home i read it isnt good to get him out of the water. Now he has an air bubble in him and i got probably half of it , according to the size, out. I want to know what to do i dont want to loose him. I made him puff up a few times and tried to hold him vertically and let the air out but rubbing his belly with no luck he stayed puffed. Any advise would be great i know this isnt good for him.

IMO, Don't strss him further. Just let him rid of it on his own.
He knows what to do.
