Exclamation Choking Oscar? O_O

ok, so i need to know how to tell if my new baby tiger oscar is choking or not. i tried giving him a piece of corn, and he didn't seem to pay much attention to it. now i just went to feed him and he would attack them, as usual, but he only ate a few flakes, choked them back up, and went to go hide at the bottom of the tank like he has an upset stomach. should i be able to see a lump in his throat? or is it just one of those things you can't fix and hope god will spare his life?

THANKS! -noadon12

well you could put him on anesthesia and check his throat for the corn but i think it's internal parasites as he ate them then threw up or he doesn't want eat those flakes.try some live foos and see whether he eats them or throws up.
