Did he bump/scrape his head against anything? He looks a wee bit bloated as well. Were the pictures taken right after a feeding?

Did he scrape/bump his head on anything? What is your net like? Is it rough or does it feel like a jersey-like material? Do you use it with the sewn part inside (where the fish sits) or on the outside? If you don't use a net, what do you use?
