Welcome to the forum. :)
Whoa there, don't freak out! You just need to fast him (not feed him) until that bulge goes away. He might be mad at you and ignore you for a while, but that will make him better in the long run.
Now, my question is, why did your friend over-feed him by 20 pellets...?

He should be fine. Don't feed him for at least 2 days IMO then feed him some blanched, de-shelled pea (frozen,not canned) or daphnia if you can find it. Epsom salt can help with constipation as well, you can do a water change and add 1/2tsp per gallon of water.. then in a few days do another water change to get the salt out.
