Ross

I believe the answer is:

sulk

Here is my best explanation:

'mood' is the definition.

(sulk is a kind of mood)

I don't understand the rest of the clue.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for sulk that I've seen before include "Be silently bad-tempered", "Fit of bad temper", "Pout", "Be in pet", "Be in a huff", "Bad mood", "Be silent and resentful", "Be silent and morose", "Be sullen and ill-tempered" and "Act aloof".)
