I am so sorry, but it DOES look like dropsy/bloat....
the pictures are a bit fuzzy but it is a very common occurence in ADFs...I lost quite a few this way over the years...
also, it is contagious, so remove the sick frog from a tank with other ADFs. Most often it is fatal, but if you keep him in his own little tank with EXCEPTIONAL water quality there IS a chance he can recover....
Its about a 25/75 success rate but if you have the space and tank for him to live by him self for a bit I would try it.
Keep shallow water....no more than 1.5 to 2 inches....they can develop swimming problems and you dont want to stress him out or have him drown
very tiny feedings....and hope....
also....(almost forgot!) Maroxy (spelling?) is a medicine that may help cure your frog, and you should give a minor dose to the main tank to help prevent other ADFs from becoming ill.
Maroxy helps cure bloat, dropsy, fungal AND bacterial infections of ADFs and ACFs (miracle solution anyone?)

hard to cure but I reccomend quarintining it
and feeding it every other day with a tiny amount of
bloodworms with some crushed peas
this has worked a couple of times for me
