Sounds like it could be wry neck- I'd give vitamins to him (the feed store sells vitamin packs for chickens).

if you click on the left column, on the "crookneck" article, you can see

Some give vitamin E and selenium to their silkies with neurological problems with great results (you can search byc for the dosage as I have not done this).

He could have been pecked on the head, or have infection, to cause some brain swelling as silkies have a soft spot in the head like a baby. (You can see "silkie skull" article at link I gave you above to see pics of silkie skull.
