Moulting takes a lot out of them, he will pick up from here on, you can add supplements to the feed or water to speed things up, but he will pick up on his own.

Just make sure that he isn't suffering from an illness. As well as moulting causing comb paleness, so will illness.
Watch for moping around, fluffing, inactivity, loss of appetite or diarrhoea.
Feel his keel bone and compare his body condition with the other birds.

I hope that it is as Buzzard has said and your bird is just suffering from the stresses of moulting.
