now i grew up with budgies and African greys all my life, none of them slept like standing but only closing their eyes. luka my 5 months old male would SOMETIMES sleep with his head at the wings like any other bird i had but will mostly when he is just standing normally on his perch would fluff and close his eyes. is this normal?

Could you take a picture? I'm struggling to picture what you mean. My birbs sleep mostly head curled back in the classic sleep pose, or will snooze with their heads normally held (but eventually go into the head-curled-back- position)

sadly he doesn't sleep in my presence. you know when cockatiels are normally standing on their perch withy their head looking forward? that's exactly how he would sleep

The 12 tiels I have all sleep with there head turned backwards and tucked into there wing or back. Also it is very common for them to sleep perched on ONE leg.

He sleeps with both legs and his head isnt tucked in, i know it might be sign of illness but there is nothing else wrong with him. Poop fine and his very active and noisy like his normal self
