Very Important--Possibly Malnourished Baby!

I have a few problems with my new guinea pig. I have another, and I have comapred them.

1.) I don't know how old he is and if he's been properly weaned. The people in the pet store were such idiots (please excuse my language).

2.) You can feel his bones (spine, ribs, etc.), but his belly is so bloated!

3.) He won't "talk" or move, unless we are making noise. Wait, he just made that "leave me alone" purr, but it sounds weird. Like all slow and everything.

4.) He won't eat fresh food, and not much dry food.

5.) His back feet are not straight. Well, the are, but they won't tuck neatly under his body, they always stick out sideways. Like this (the head is pointing down) /( )\
)(
\/
6.) His body is weirdly shaped, like above, but not as skinny by the head.(like a lightbulb)

Also, his poop is normal, not runny or discolored or anything. PLEASE HELP!
