Talking My new baby!

So I got a pineapple GCC today and I'm already in love with him. He's about 3 and a half months old and I don't know the gender yet but I have the strange feeling it's a boy he's a very curious little guy and he's been playing around for the three hours he's been home. He looks kind of sleepy now and he keeps pulling up a foot, fluffing up, and closing his eyes but he has terrible balance and ends up leaning too far to where he almost falls over and he starts flapping his wings and re-balancing himself. Is that bad or will he be fine? He only climbs around and doesn't jump from perch to perch which seems easier especially since he has trouble with the cage bars and keeps slipping (it's just a temporary cage until the real one comes in, hopefully he'll do better in that one) and he likes to hang out at the bottom of the cage a little bit. If you have any advice I greatly appreciate it!
P.S. This is a photo I got of him earlier when I caught his attention while he was preening

First Congratulations! So Cute!

it usually takes every bird a few days to adjust to the surroundings, being still young he may not have the confidence to jump yet..things take time he will when he is ready. be concerned with the sitting at the bottom of the cage if it continues and is all he does birds also like the bottom to scavenge and check out their surroundsings, however they should not spend a whole lot of time there as that is usually a bad sign...
