Issue with Jowls (or whatever you call the two lumps on their face)

Hi all, I am reaching out here because I have been very concerned about my baby bearded dragon's jowls, I'm not sure what his exact age is but I want to estimate ~5 months or so (he sat in a store for a while till we got him) and we have had him since March, we recently noted his Jowls have jutted out and that they feel firm, there is also a strange lump that is now forming between them, which isn't helping with the stress, the strange thing is he still acts like himself, is any of these two things normal? Our adult bearded dragon never had these issues when they were little. I've already booked a vet appointment though it'll take a week for them to see him, my biggest concern is if he can make it till then, I attached two photos.

Thank you.

It may just be a strange ,excessively large jowl area but is more likely to be a possible infection. He should be fine until the vet visit, although it's worrisome it's good that he's still active and not showing any signs of distress.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
