Shaking his head after I give him food on the tweezer

A few times when I give my bearded dragon greens or crickets on a tweezer, after he eats it, he shakes his head. He has been doing it with the first food I feed him if I feed him a few things in a row. Normally, he shakes his head when I do something annoying. Or something is on him like water. There is purée on the greens, but nothing on the crickets. He has purée on his face. I’m wondering if he is trying to get that off. Does anyone know what this could mean?

Mine do that sometime, nothing to worry about. BTW you can give him slightly larger crickets, he's big enough. Good to see him eating after all he's been through.
Thank you for all your help. I actually have been giving him large crickets lately. Just the bag I bought had a bunch of smaller ones. He still dosent seem to be at 100%. But, I definitely see him getting more excited about the food.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
