Beardie shedding not eating crickets

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I have a male bearded dragon around a year old. He’s shedding his head right now. And hasn’t been interested in his crickets last time he ate them was Tuesday today is Thursday. He went a few days with out them before Tuesday though. but eats his vegetables throughout the day. I’ve been giving him bathed for his shedding. Recently he’s been doing this thing where he’s almost huffing? He did it in the bath and when I picked him up yesterday and now today while I tired feeding him crickets. I was thinking it might be him being annoyed. He does get cranky when he sheds, and there were a bunch of Crickets near him that he held no interest in. I also noticed in his poop that there was a cricket head in there. He doesn’t seem stressed out, he’s light colored eyes aren’t sunken in and he’s been active. I’m just wondering if these are signs to take him to the vet or it’s just shedding. Thank you in advanced!
Viv info if needed:
40 gallon breeded
100 watt heat lamp and uvb
Hammock right under his light
Cool side if tank as well
Day temp is always high 90, night is 70s. he gets at least 13 hours of light a day

I don't think there is cause for concern. Shedding often gets them moody and can affect their appetite. He will likely return to normal once his shed is done.
