Lock jaw?

duanest...I gave that a shot...I extended the jaw out fully, in thoughts this could reset the jaw...I figured the jaw is hyper-extended in some way.  After I extended it, i gently pushed back into it's normal position.  Looked fine out of the water.  Walked away for a minute.  Came back.  Jaw was back to locked...maybe i can give it another shot.  The fish is having a really bad time adjusting to eating with it's jaw stuck out.

I had this a few years back with a Petenia spendida, after it didn't straighten out after  day or 2 on it's own, I caught it and gently pulled it back into place with my fingers.  Worked fine for me, just lucky? maybe, but worth a try.

I have seen this in fish as they came in from africa or from the importer.  it may work it self out.  I dont think you can fix it.

I noticed that one of my comps has it jaw locked.  It is stuck all the way out...almost as if it's always yawning.  The fish is having difficulties eating/getting used to eating this way.  Does anyone have an experience with this?  What if anything can be done?
