I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in avian health. I'm sorry to hear of Mokka's problem.
Acting a bit off could be the result of losing his friend, but in combination with the swelling, I am concerned that he may be ill. Swelling under the beak can occur with ear infections, as well as several diseases. The best thing to do would be to have Mokka seen by an avian vet. It's better to be safe than sorry.

If you have more concerns, just let me know. I hope it will turn out that Mokka is fine.
