HELP.. wat do I do?

Came home today and found my chocolate oranda sat on the bottom of the tank.. Took a closer look and saw that its sat with its mouth wide open, it looks like theres a stone or something stuck but cant relly see, I dont know what to do.. will it come out on its own if its something stuck or could it be something else?! help :( xx

If it was capable of getting it out on its own I imagine it would have already. Might be time to net the fish and grab a pair of tweezers.

That is a possibility however leaving it in will surely cause it harm.
