Sorry about your chicken! :( He looks like a sweet rooster. Maybe a respiratory issue? How long has he been sick? Can you take him to a vet? Maybe he is allergic to something?

Can you take a video of him and upload it to youtube? Provide us a link to the video

Have you looked to see if Mang has any mites or lice?
Look in his ears to see if there is any pus or yellow waxy substance in them.
Does he have a discharge/mucous coming from his nostrils?

I'm sorry - I did not get an alert that you added photos to your post about his beak

His beak is fairly long and needs to be trimmed. Does he seem to eat o.k.? What do you feed him?
Here's a good article about how to trim the beak https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/beak-and-claw-trimming.74570/

You also had questions/replies on another thread, you may want to take a look at that too, not sure if you saw it.

I would still work on trimming that beak up little by little.

Look him over really well for lice or mites - under the wings and around the vent.
The sneezing? That can be from a number of things - poor ventilation, dust, mold and respiratory disease are a few common causes of sneezing.
Keep an eye on him for a few days - is the sneezing becomes worse or is accompanied by coughing, mucous, facial swelling or watery eyes, then you need to be concerned.
