I'm afraid I don't know much about wild birds. But young birds still cannot keep themselves warm, so you should try to fix up a little box with a water bottle filled with warm water and then wrapped in a towel to place inside with him. (The idea is to keep him warm, not to burn him if the water is too hot.).

Young birds often sleep in the nest right after being fed.

Is there a wildlife rescue resource nearby where you can take him? Or at least ask questions about how best to care for him?

I hope your mynah is doing well and you can find some veterinary or rescue help. I agree on the water bottle idea @Kassiani

I was tagged here @Zara perhaps because I fostered 2 Greater Indian Hill mynahs in the 80's. Per my vet's recommendations they ate only monkey biscuits. They were extremely healthy, talkative, full flighted, and active with glowing feathers. But times have changed and I'm sure that's not the optimal diet. My biggest issue with them was their poop. Holy cow, so large and stinky. I eventually found them a home in the foyer of a veterinary office where they learned to meow and bark.

Good luck!
