nerite trapdoor has been closed...

as title says, one of my nerites has been excessively shy lately. a friend of mine who also keeps fish and nerites came over tonight and glanced at him. she says its not normal... but since ive had him for about 4 months already, i know that hes always been shy, rarely moving too much (at least during the day), but still out and about. however for the past 2-3 days hes kept his trapdoor closed and he hasnt been moving. i know hes still alive, since hes resisting when gently i try to pull on his trapdoor. is this normal behavior? i know snails can decide to hibernate and come out after a period of time,, but this kinda worries me..

I hope hes okay :/ Maybe he's stressed because a tank mate 9if there is any?) is picking on him :3 You know bettas....mine will get the biggest entertainment of knocking baby snails of the glass and watching them fall to the bottom of the tank to climb back up again and be knocked down...LOL
