Betta Got Stuck in a Castle

Today on the first day we moved Casper, our classroom Betta from a 1 gallon to a 10gallon, he got [ATTACH]293467 stuck in his castle. My friend was able to get him out but he lost half his tail in the process. It was very sad his head was stuck in the window & he was moving it vigorously trying to get out. He stayed in one spot for a while but is now swimming a little. However he refuses to eat. Will he survive? Is there anything I can do to help him heal? He does not have any tank mates. His tank has a penguin filter and a heater.

Like Shahab84 said, fin rot meds will help with his recovery. Ensure your water changes are very regular; since it's a physical injury, do water changes every few days. Make sure you remove any poo or uneaten food, as this will reduce water quality and slow the healing process.
Also, since he was able to get stuck in the castle, i strongly recommend removing the castle from the tank and replacing it with decor that he definitely can't get stuck in. Keeping it in the tank just gives him the apportunity to get stuck again, which will greatly stress him out. Remember, fish can die from stress.
Hope he recovers soon!
