He sure looks ok from his color and size. did you possibly over feed and cause a spike in water levels? maybe a water change at a slightly cooler temperature to refresh him?

He's color looks great and I did a water change last night so I'll take a pic(front view) of him when I get home so you can see where he looks bloated

I would def test the water when you get home too, make sure nothing is amiss there. I have two that look identical to your guy there and I really enjoy watching them. I know them though and if they stopped eating id be concerned , mine are eating machines

I have a gold gourami to and he's fine swimming normal eating like a fat guy at a buffet but my dwarf just kinda sits in one spot then moves alil and hangs out again... He's been like this for a few days now... Also I feed my fish some blood worms But he ate it and spit it out right away

Shelled mashed peas are a great fish laxative. Too many bloodworms can be constipating.
