Do you have any pictures of the fish?

Also could you tell us what your water parameters are?

What exactly is your water change schedule and how much do you change out?

What specifically is your ammonia, nitrite, and nitrates?

Based off your fish behavior and appearance I'd say he has a bacterial or parasitic issue. Don't know enough to determine that yet so as much info as possible would help and pics as Fish pointed out.
