Default Stressed axolotl

I got my axolotl from a pet store, his gills are all bent forward which means he is stressed right? Just wondering how long does it take for it to destress and his gills lay back flat?

First you should identify the source of his stress. If it is from being in a new home/tank, then he should adjust in a few days or so. Otherwise it could be diet or temperature. Some pet stores are not great with axolotl husbandry and keep them in water that is too warm, and feed pellets which may not have complete nutritional value.
