He could have Bornavirus , which I’m afraid is very common and incurable. It causes death by malnutrition . Or it might be a crop or stomach infection , either way it needs urgent medical attention. If you don’t have access to a vet I would try to feed him liquid nutrients through a syringe , they should be able to digest liquids , if not then something is definitely wrong.
