His eyes do look a little swollen.

Try 1 tsp/gal Epsom salt to see if that helps to reduce the swelling. While you use the Epsom salt, do 100% daily water changes.

It does look somewhat swollen. I don't think its like legit full on Popeye yet, but you should do something about it.

At first I thought this was about that cartoon Popeye.... O.e

Alright. I'll go add some Epsom salt to the jug and do a water change. Thanks for your feedback.
