Does he stay still while hissing? or does he charge forward? or move closer to princess? or back away all together?

Might be fear but more then likely he's just expressing annoyance. Louise tends to hiss when its night time and someone comes near her cage. Likely because she's having trouble seeing who it is or because she wants to sleep. But she's very tame and hasn't ever bitten anyone.

Unless he actually does something aggressive I wouldn't classify hissing as aggression by itself.

Tiels have a way of letting you know that you are annoying them.

Hissing is more a sign of fear than aggression...if mine are gonna hiss they do it while backing up.

He stick his head out and his but he does to the female budgie especially she's new so
I'm thinking it's dominance as he was like this when his mate was introduced, they are now fine though. He does eventually fly off the only time he bit was when I first got him and his wings got stuck and I picked him up to help him

Louise usually only hisses if you approach her cage at night or when I do it in the morning. And she doesn't really back up, I just don't think she likes being woke up.

I'm not sure tiels do a lot of dominance things like dogs. For the most part I've only noticed hissing in the past when they are either afraid or annoyed. The other bird may be annoying him.
