Getting bored with food items happens more often then you think. A lot of my leopard geckos would eat crix for months, sometimes years. All of a sudden they would ignore them and just go after mealworms or supers (then after a few months they would go back to crix again). I haven’t seen my cresties get bored yet, but I am sure it is possible. My male typically eats 4-5 crix every other day. But he has gone on binges were he would eat very few for a couple weeks (usually during the breeding season). Take a look at the pic above (one of my males). This is around the average (prob a little above) size and girth of a male crested gecko from my experiences. Females (pic below) tend to be larger as you can see (my girls are always waiting in there bowls for me to feed them, this one feel asleep waiting…lol).
So it is not always fair to compare the male size to the female. Hopefully your male if resembles something of the pic above. If not, continue to hand feed him fruit mixed with baby food. He may consume the meat alone (most don’t), but he will eat far more if fruit is included. Good Luck
