It could be. I had a platy fry kinda like that, it was a different color and mostly laid on the bottom of the breeder box. It ate and every once in awhile tried to swim but it would just sink back down. It died within a few days. I also had 3 Molly fry like that and I'm sure they were preemies because their mom never really looked pregnant. Two were weak swimmers and mostly just laid on the bottom but one was a good swimmer. They all died within a few days, I'm not sure if they were eaten or if they just were too small to make it.

There's really nothing you can do for it other than frequent water changes and feedings.
