Gene feared a few things. There was the regular adolescent angst but with Gene there was more. Much of his fears had to do with Finny. He feared his relationship with Finny (loosing him, competing with him, being close to him, becoming him...) I think most of Genre's fears were tied up with Finny in one way or another. There is a homoerotic element to their relationship that always lay hidden beneath the surface of things. I think his fears were tied up with that too.
