Is he too skinny?

I was wondering if my bearded dragon is too skinny.
He is about 20 months old.
I give him a few leaves of greens in the morning, he is really picky about them, usually eats a few. Right now he gets a small handful of watercress in the AM and eats most of it.
I give him 1" roaches, about 5-6 a few times a week.
I think the 1" roaches are a little too small, so I swapped my dubia subscription for 1.25.

He is very active- he always wants to come out and he roams my room almost everyday, often more than once. He is always looking out the glass doors, and loves to come out.

I really don't want him to be unhealthy, obviously. If he's too skinny, I'll do whatever I need to to fix it for him.

He needs more variety of veggies in his diet here is a website ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder to me he looks small for a 20 month old-- add worms to his diet horn worm butter worms super meal worms

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
