As you are trying to build your bird's trust and it is going through a molt right now, I would not advise trying to cut its nails.
Doing so is going going to set you back to the point where the bird is terrified of you.

I wish you had written this yesterday morning

The "operation" went well. He can already move and perch easier. Is it possible that he noticed we did something that helped him? He actually seems more calm and less anxious. While uncovering the covers today he almost didnt nervously move at all. He's returning noises somewhat well and seems calmer in general (not frozen with fear or something).

He actually seems a bit more vocal too, which is great.

I feel like we're progressing well, and the nail cutting didn't affect him much, besides him being maaybe a bit careful with things.

Hopefully we did a good thing, and I can move along with bonding with him as fast as possible

Another question actually.

The reason I said he was molting was that he actually has quite a few pin feathers on his head. I would say at one point he has around 5-10. Can this actually happen without him molting? I didn't notice him losing many feathers actually. Any idea what this might have been? It seems like his pin feathers are reducing actually Was this just some kind of weak molt? I've never experienced it before so I'm not sure how bad it gets in terms of feather loss.

Anytime a feather falls out you will see a pin feather where the new one is growing in. Molts range from minor to severe, 5-10 pin feathers is minor, during a more severe molt you will see many feathers lost and the bird may become more quiet and lethargic than normal and can also become crabby. During this time it is best not to encourage activity, let the bird decide how much activity he feels like doing. Providing hard boiled egg or commercially prepared egg food will help with the protein requirements during the molt. I grate the white of a hard boiled egg and they all love it.
