From my experience it could be a number of issues. But as he is so young its probably more of being unsettled. Try speaking softly encouraging with a treat and operating very slowly around him. Talk to him and let him settle in.

However, sitting on the cage floor can also be a sign of ill health so if that continues you should see the avain vet.

I hope this is helpful, upload some photos of your new baby tiel .
