My beardie is walking funny

So today I realized after work that my little guy has a little bit of a funny walk, im not too sure what it could be related too, he has a pretty well balanced diet of crickets and vegetables and occasionally fruit, I make sure to add his calcium supplements. He seems to behaving well still eating and wanting to spend time together and everything seems to be going good besides the little funny walk he is doing? Does anyone have any clue to what it could be, my beardie is abo it 8-9 months, and I believe it’s male but I very well could be wrong.

If you want to use a coil I recommend not ---go to a reptisun 26 wattage but it must be in a dome w/ a ceramic socket unobstructed 6-8 inches directly above the basking decor- your dragon is not getting the proper uvb and is developing mbd- I recommend a long tube 24" zoo med or sunblaster nano or Arcadia pro T 5
Do this asap - thrive bulbs are junk- throw them away -- You want a reptisun 10.0 T 5 or a Arcadia 12% bulb you can look here www.pangeateptiles.com if you need more help please ask you can stop it from getting worse but mbd- is not reversable
