The first thing you should do is check his temperatures (probably the first thing you should do when you have any problem). 120 basking spot with a gradient down to 80-90 on the cool end. I would not worry much as long as he is eating a little. My little one didn't really start eating a lot until last month and I have had him for 5 months. He would eat peas and flowers and nibble on his greens but nothing very substantial. (He did go to the bathroom every day however; does your little one go frequently?) Now he's a eating machine and is always almost awkwardly fat. As long as his setup is right I'd just give him more time.

PS: dandelions and peas are Nebu's favorite.
