Unfortunately, not much, he may have been born premature, but some kittens just won't nurse and crawl away from the momacat to a corner of a box (if that's where he is). It's called "fading kitten syndrome", and usually in a few days kitty dies. :(
Here is more info on this condition : Understanding and Preventing Fading Kitten Syndrome
