    I have never seen an eye bulge like that.

    Sounds like the baby has CRD or infectious Coryza.

    I would try injectable Tylan and Terrimycin eye ointment for the eyes. I assume it is isolated from the other birds?

    I have never drained fluid from the face, but you might be able to use a syringe to aspirate some of the liquid from its jaw. Leave the eye alone.
