Dalmation Molly huge eye.

Looks like popeye.
Usually bacterial.
Fish in the picture looks like a tetra not a molly..Possibly a serpae?

I didn't see him on the gravel at all !
If the eye is protruding there is likely a bacterial issue or possibly some form of osmotic shock to cause gas behind its eye.
Mollies like hard water and can develop issue if kept in soft water..
