Yellow eye kole tang sick

My yellow eye kole tang which I've had for about a month has suddenly become sick. His mouth seems to be stuck open where he can't get any food in or pick the algae off the live rock. He also went from being very active in the tank to hiding and not swimming very well with the currents in the tank. I don't notice any white spots. Has anyone seen anything like what I've described? Attached is a photo trying to show how his mouth is stuck open.

May have injured himself, does his mouth move at all?

That sucks, Did he have any cuts/marks on him? I try to make it a habit to examine a fish after it dies, it teaches you alot.
