Infection or Shed

Hello I'm looking for some advice about my Loki.

He is roughly 15 months old.
He has been glass surfing quite a bit in the last two days and I noticed his ears look a little off and I am not sure if this is because of an infection or that he is shedding because I've never seen his ears shed in the last year like I have his nose.
He also has been reluctant to eating his greens and veggies but gobbles up any meal worms or crickets I give him. He has also had some runny poops lately.
He is in a 40g tank which has a temp gradient from 85 to100 and his humidity is at 30%.
Below are images of both ears

That just looks like shedding to me. I don't see sign for concern. At his age if he isn't eating his salads much, I'd try reducing the bugs for a while and see if you can get his interest in salad. Try hand feeding a bit to create movement to grab his attention. It may take a while to get him used to it, but it will be better in the long run if he is including a bigger portion of veges in his overall diet.

Hello,

I agree, I don't see any indication of infection. It is just a normal looking shed coming up.
He looks very healthy, too.
