Sneezing bird ruffling feathers

Dr B has answered this before, so I will repeat what he says.

You need to have your bird looked at by an avian veterinarian. Occasional sneezing is normal, but you should have the bird looked at to be sure this is not an infection.

Sinus infections are common in birds and you should not wait to have it looked at. Bird fluff their feathers to keep warm, and this is often the first sign of illness.
