Problem re my new clown

Hey guys! Hope everyone had a merry Xmas!

Got a problem with my new clown though. (After my heater disaster I've decided to get a new clown, 1.5 inch, to keep company of my pair.)

My old clowns are out and about much more now and all the clowns seem to be very happy.

But my new clown got this weird concaved place on his head region, almost making it look like it's wasting. It's a little skinny but the body is otherwise normal (belly and no other place concaved etc.) It's eating fine although only interested in frozen bloodworms so far. It's out and playing most of the time. The only behavioral problem I noticed is that sometimes when it's swimming it would look like it got tired and sinks to the bottom but soon snaps out of it and swim again. It also "plays dead" more often than more other 2 clowns.

What do you guys think is wrong with my guy? Could this be the skinny diseas
