Maybe you could post a photo for us? When Oscars are very small you will often notice a distended stomach if they have eaten a lot. Best thing to do is just feed once a day for the next two or three days and see if the stomach goes down. That's about as much advice as I can give you going by the information you have provided for the minute.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Do not feed until you are sure there are bowel movements. If anything, see if he will eat a few green peas, they are a laxitive of sorts for fish. If he is constipated, you dont want to add to the bulge.

Raw is good. Keep an eye out for waste production. No other feed until he "goes".

Thats good. What specifically, and how often/how much do you feed the fish? Oscar waste, even from a smallish fish should be visible, and should also be vacced from the tank asap.
