It looks like he has some paralysis. It could be from metabolic bone disease due to lack of calcium and proper UVB exposure. It looks like he's having a hard time moving his back legs in particular. I would probably get him to a vet who specializes in reptile care if you can.

When was the last time he pooped? What does he typically eat? Can you provide more detail about your setup including surface temperatures around the enclosure, which model and size of UVB you are using (and distance from the UVB to basking area)? If you can get everything set up as well as you can in his enclosure, it will give him the best chance at survival.

I agree w/ Cooper Dragon --- I would get him into a smaller enclosure for now like a hospital tank so you can focus on basking temps and UVB ---- you can use a 20 gallon plastic tote and set his lights up like this [Click image to enlarge]
-- this is from another one of our members that is good w/ helping sick dragons -- please answer Coopers questions so advice can be given on how to help him -- there is a vet tech mod on here that can help as well -- she can advise you on medical stuff --
But for now the 200 gallon tank hes in is too big -- here is a website to find a vet in your area
