Clown with LockJaw???

I've got 3 clown loaches, the last one (and the largest at about 3 inches) I've had for about two months. Everything was fine until about 5 days ago when I noticed the largest favoring the top of the tank with his mouth wide open - never shutting it. The other two are fine, but this one doesn't move from the top of the tank nor does he seem to be eating, just sitting there with his mouth wide open. The local fish shop says it could be lockjaw and if it is, there's nothing I can do except get rid of him... Anyone have any ideas? I'd appreciate anything! Thanks in advance.
