The dragon looks impacted - I can help w/ this but first the dragons need their own tanks- dragons should never be kept together and the people that sold them should of told you- dragons are territorial and as they get older two males will kill each other- please separate them-- next how big are the insects being fed? They should not be bigger than the space between the eyes- surface basking temps need to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer- 105-110--- uvb No coils please-- you need a long tube fixture since there are 2 dragons your going to need 2 tank setups- please get some baby food pumpkin add a drop of olive oil and see if he will lick off a spoon if not you will need to syringe feed make it a runny consistency hydration is important - feed till he poops- but your lighting and surface basking temps are crucial- for him to get this passed - I can help w/ links to good uvb

NO more meal worms---- this is the issue--- they have a exoskeleton on them that will cause impaction --- the rest sounds good---- but we must get the lighting and the surface temps for basking correct ---
Do not feed anything else but the pumpkin till he poops then hes going to need soft foods for awhile --- I would feed about 1ml at a time several times per day adding water to it so hes getting hydration

I have no idea but please feed only greens and insects according to size the space no bigger between his eyes--- No meal worms please ---- and for now hold off on super worms as well if feeding those -- what was being fed prior to being impacted?
Nutrition Content ignore the kale info its out dated

Hello,

Very odd looking! It could just be build up of the undigested worms or skin of them, not sure.
So how is the baby doing now, basking normally?
As Karrie suggested, I would just stick with small crickets right now, but no meal worms or super
worms since they are harder to digest. Are you giving extra oral fluids, too?
