There's not that much leftover yolk, so he should be fine, as far as aftercare I'd recommend applying a small amount of an antibacterial ointment to keep his navel area from getting infected, as well as keeping his brooder clean, and dry.

So I should take him out of the incubator then and put him into a brooder to dry out?

I would *probably* leave him in there for a few more hours, then take him out. I can see the humidity is pretty high in your incubator, so it will take quite a while for him to dry if you don't take him out.
