Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:
Can he move any of his legs on his own?
If you pinch a toe on his back leg, can he feel it?
Does he have a head tilt?
Are his eyes flickering back and forth?

Too late, i just got back from the emergy vet in colonia NJ. The vet did blood work and ended up putting the kitten down. He was in a coma and was having seizures.

I am very sorry to hear that was the case.
I will pass you back to customer service now.
Please take care,
Dr. B.
