Why my snail is floating?

Okay, for the past few days my snail has been floating in my tank. I check t see if he was dead and he didn't smell funny. I'm not sure way he is doing it. It's worrying me now and I don't want him starving to death. Someone said try to put him upside down to see if any "air" came out of him/ So I put him upside down like suggested and this how he looks so far.

He hasn't been eating either. Can someone help???

Sometimes my snails float for whatever reason. They usually find a wall and climb down.
How long has he been doing this?

Eta: Hm, has he been moving at all, his.....fleshy bits?
Not much this week.:-? Only the times I put him upside down and then he'll close back up to his shell.
If he's still moving, I think he's okay. If you're worried, a small water change could help :)
