That looks like an adult to me -- I don't know which species, but probably doesn't matter under the circumstances.

Savanna and Gray Nightjar are most likely in Singapore, but Gray is the most common. The gray cap suggests Gray over Savanna, which has a black cap.
If there is a rehab center in Singapore, I would suggest bringing him/her there.
