Default Puffer health question?

I just got this sharpnose puffer a few hours ago and there is the bulge in its stomach and it seems to be swimming uncomfortably. I've read around and seen that it is common for puffers to do this. Is that true or should I be a little worried?

Very common. That's why they're called puffers. It'll work itself out eventually.
