He looks good and healthy -- I would switch the crickets over to dubias --- they are a better nutritional source than crickets and alot easier to deal w/ --- less mess less noise less stink and they last longer - keep them in a 10 gallon tank and feed dubia food along w/ carrots and squash for hydration or the food you feed your dragon -- I would switch up his meal worms or offer super horn and butter worms and maybe some silk worms which are also a staple feeder - if you would like websites I can give you some to order

Looks fine to me, too. Looks healthy, not skinny and not obese. 👍
Healthier to be average or on the slim side of average anyway. IMO. They can get all the same health issues that any other obese animal, reptile or human can get. Don't want that. 😮
