I had a collie that was uncomfortable with rollover and play dead until he was about three years old. Then he was fine. Some just need more time to trust someone else with dominance. To get his head to lay still, I just hold a treat right near the nose and use "wait". Start with a very short amount of time, and build up. You can reward him after the trick is over. By the way I call it 'take a nap', but it's the same trick.

Here's my video with Bailey:
