Woke up this morning and my Oscar's mouth is stuck out, almost like it's stuck in the yawning position. He can still open it, he ate some food this morning. Is there a way to push it back in? Looks like there's 2 bones on the top that connect to his lip.

He's about 11 inches, if I have to catch him this is gonna be a fight. I don't want him to end up dying or be permanently disfigured

After a huge wrestle and tons of water on the floor, I was able to get him in a bucket and was able to get his mouth pushed back in. The edges of his lip still seems to be out a bit but at least his whole top jaw isn't extended out.

He's back in the tank now relaxing.. got pretty stressed out. If that was a smaller fish it probably would have died from shock
