Platy acting weird

Ever since i brought my male sunburst Platy home he hasn't been acting normal. He will just sit at the bottom or inside one of my decorations. Now he is out and about swimming (kind of) and his fins just look like they are glued to his side! His tale isn't spread out, it's compact together. I don't see any sights of ich or anything, can someone tell me what his problem might be and how I can fix it? I really don't want to lose him. One more thing is he won't breed with the female Platy that is in there either!

Tricky one - possibly stress or just didn't like the handling of being shifted. Would you have water specs? I assume fins weren't clamped at the store (if just really recent and quick I would discount parasites for the moment).
