Odd behavor for nothing showing physically, would get a white light turn off the blues and check him in detail as some things cant be seen under blue lighting.

Also watch for tank mate aggression he could be getting picked on and getting stressed out.

Im pretty sure that all his mates are very peaceful and not agressive at all. But I will check him on tomorrow when white light on. Thanks again Frost.

I pressed on your video then downloaded it then went to my gallery on my phone and video is in there under " downloads" for others who want to see video
Im no expert but just thought i would chime in to let others know what to do to be able to see video.
Looks like your wrasse broke his back or something.
Maybe put him in his own tank to try recuperate if thats even possible for him i do not know.or an acliminastion box is an option if getting harrassed by others in the tank.
But run the risk of stressing him out even more if move him into unfamilar tank or small acliminastion box so you danged it you do or dammed if you dont but ive never experienced anything like this so sorry for your fish and hope it just temporary and he recovers.all i can think off is if got startled he swam fast into the rocks or as he buried himself he swam fast down into bottom glass.
But if worse comes to worse then maybe research euthanisation of the fish but will tag @jayhemdal

I see symptoms of a neurological disease sometimes seen in wrasses. Some people attribute this to the fish having smacked into something. While I can’t rule that idea out entirely, I often see this in wrasse that show no damage on their snout from having run into something. I think there is an unknown internal disease process involving the nervous system - bacterial, viral, even myxosporidians.

Is the fish still feeding?

I had (for a couple of years) a perfectly normal large Lunare Wrasse that I loved; in moving him to another tank there was a ‘freak accident’ and I literally saw and HEARD him smack into the side of the tank. From that moment on he did not swim right, and died within a few days. “Spinal cord” injury is what I figured it was. :(
