Sounds like it may be pop eye. What size tank is he in and how often do you change his water?

He's in a bowl. I change it 1-2 times a week as needed. The bubble is whitish in color and seems to be getting a little better. He was hanging out at the bottom of his bowl the other day but now is active and swimming alot more.

Some contaminant may have found it's way into the bowl. Until it goes away I would do water changes daily. Also if you do not already do so start adding a pinch of dissolved aquarium salt to his water at change time. I'd also give him salt baths until it gets better, possible medication of it gets worse.
