    Baby budgie underdeveloped?

    So I have had my budgie who I suspect is a male, for about a month, and he's around 2 months old but can't fly and has barely any wings or tail. I think he will be fine, just a late bloomer, but I want to make sure that he will be ok. Photo is attatched. Thankyou

However, I haven't seen threads on how molting can affect a household. I'm mostly asking this due to mess wise. How...
