It's OK. I imagine your vet would want to do some blood work, check his thyroid. Also check for any parasites (stool sample). Hope you get some answers.

You could add a little chicken broth to his food to make it more appealing to him.As far as weight gain sometimes it takes a little time for them to put weight on.You want any weight gain to be gradual that way it is more muscle than fat.There is a high calorie paste called Nutra paste and it helps maintain weight and help with weight gain.Alot of vets and pet stores carry it.
