The two main signs of a stressed axolotl are gills curved forward, and a curled round tail tip. Especially among young axolotls, the gills can curve forward because the water flow is too strong.

Also if he starts floating around, it can be a sign of stress, or constipation. But that's up to you to determine why it floats
