the snail shouldnt come out of its shell. if its trying to flip itself over it shouldnt have a problem doing so (only salt water astrea snails seem to have this problem that i am aware of )
you can try flipping him over yourself but to me he sounds like hes done for sadly. could you post more info on your tank, like what kind of fish, how big, how long has it been running, filtration, feeding, could you post actual tank parameters like ammonia, nitrite, nitrate,pH, temp?
