Red Platy Looks Sickly

My red Platy has clamped fins and Is quite thin. He tends to swim on the upper half of the tank constantly.

Sounds like he needs a salt bath. I'd say a slime disorder.

That isn't enough info to come to any conclusion, what sized tank is he in? Parameters? Temp? Other inhabitants? Water change regimen?
