Help! Jumped!

One of our fishes jumped during a change and fell onto the tile floor. We got him into his cup and he was swimming around just fine, had two-three small rips in his fins. We put him in his bowl, with proper aquasafe, and now he is at the bottom, face in the rocks... doing nothing?! We are afraid he died... yet he was just fine a minute ago in his cup. Help?

He may have suffered internal injuries from the fall.

Do you think we should wait like an hour and see if he moves at all? :[

Yeah, wait awhile to make sure he isn't dead.

His gills aren't moving... and he looks like he's nose-diving. Nose in the rocks, kinda angled straight up.

If he's not breathing then he's dead. I'm sorry.
