Default Tugging Clipped Wing

Hello, for those of you who didn't read my other post, I let my co-worker clip my budgie's wings last Saturday and now regret it. She clipped all his flight feathers.

The other day I saw him tugging of one of his wings pretty harshly and just figured he was straightening them out.

He did it a couple more times since then but today I observed him for a full 10-minutes chewing and pulling on the clipped stubs on one of his wings. He was pulling them so hard he lost balance twice.

I've only seen him doing it after flapping around the cage, could he just not be used to the shortness? Could it be one of the stubs are poking him? Should I let him handle it on his own or take him to a vet?
