Hi there - Welcome to PT. Be sure to introduce yourself and your fur babies over in the Introductions forum so everyone can give you a warm welcome!
If he's "discomforted" - he may very well be hungry. Or, he could simply be a more vocal, whiny baby. LOL
You could intervene now and then, like putting him up with Mama to nurse while the other two are sleeping (even help him get attached if he seems to need it) - maybe do that a couple times a day. And when it's time for them to start eatting big kitty food, if he still needs a helping hand, be right there to make sure he gets his fair share.
Make sure he doesn't get dehydrated - you can check by gently pinching and pulling up a little on his scruff - when you let go, the skin should bounce right back. If he gets dehydrated and seems to be struggling, you can always give him bottle feedings now and then too.
People always say how the "runts" make the best pets. IMO, that's because from early on, they've been handled and helped along more than the others.
Keep us updated, and post some pictures for us !
