A 7g loss isn’t anything to worry about. Stick to weighing him weekly and hopefully he will put on again.
Does he live alone?

Are you going to get him neutered and bond them (after 6 week wait)? Is he still getting plenty of hay?

Yes definitely getting him neutered ...

May be he’s not eating as much. Hay is the biggest part of the diet so if they don’t eat enough it will show through weight loss.
you may have to change back to the other hay.

The did change back to old brand (momi second cut timothy hay) but its too stalky which i realise he would not eat ... so i bought 5 kinds today (oxbow) try to see if he likes any of it .. not sure if i should mix it..

There’s no harm in trying. If he was on the stalky one before and gaining he likely likes it.
