Is he eating like normal? And does he normally poop much during the day? I've found that my buns sleep through most of the day and don't poop a whole lot. And how long has it been? Right now it's probably best to just watch him. Make sure he keeps eating and drinking. If it gets close to 24 hours with no poop, it's best to get him to a vet.

Pineapple doesn't actually do anything for hairballs. Give him lots of exercise and try to get him to eat lots of hay. Try putting it in toys like toilet paper rolls and cardboard boxes to make it more interesting. If he is a bit "plugged up" then that will help more than pineapple. Also, if he's used to veggies then you can give him some wet veggies to make sure he's getting enough water. I give mine canned pumpkin for that. Hydration is very important and sometimes all they need is a little extra water to get things moving.
