A stowaway, huh? I'm kind of surprised that the employee didn't notice.
I would keep trying to feed him bloodworms and perhaps get a few snails for him to try. He may just be sickly and there's nothing you can do about it, but he may start eating again. Try to get the food as close to him as possible; you can even dangle it on a fingertip if he comes to the surface. The only other thing I can think of to try feeding him (other than live snails) is live blackworms. The movement can help stimulate them. Mine also ate better with other puffers to compete with but since he wasn't an intentional purchase in the first place it's understandable if you don't want more.
Good luck with him, and keep us posted. And er... keep an eye on the gobies' fins. Some puffers don't mind tankmates, but mine chomped on their oto "buddies."
