What do you mean by stuck? Like lodged in it's throat, and you think it's choking? Or did he just turn into a glutton and stuff himself?

If he has just eaten too much you can give him peas as this may help digestion if its stuck in its actual mouth this is a little more troublesome and unless it dislodges itself your may have to remove it yourself but very carefully.

By the way 3 is not a good number of oscars, and how big is your tank?

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

I think more often they just fill their mouths up with as much as they can get like the greedy buggers they are. It makes it look like they have food stuck in their mouths but they don`t.
I`m not saying they don`t get things caught in there, and people on here have seen pics of plecos and other fish caught in oscars mouths, but usually they look after themselves ok.
Glad it worked out well for you :)

oscars breath through their gills and can stuff their mouths completely, without them chocking. ;)
Plus pellets will dissolve and become soft, so there's really no risk in this glutinous behaviour.

I had a goldfish with bad swimbladder issues that would regularly get gravel stuck in his mouth and I would have to remove it myself. The fish was odd thou and swam around in donut circles and liked having its belly stroked :)
