Oh, he's so beautiful! How's he doing now? Has he eaten? It's normal for rosy boas to go a few months without eating, but if it goes like 5 or 6...and/or he starts losing weight, I would take him to a qualified herp vet asap.

The scale indents seem normal, mine has a few of those as well. It could be from how he shed his skin, maybe he rubbed up against something hard when shedding that caused an indent. Or it could be lack of hydration as others have suggested. A short soak wouldn't be a bad idea. Also make sure he can find his water dish and knows that there's actually water in it-- sometimes I have to put my 13 year old rosy in hers if she doesn't come out to drink for a while! Then she'll drink just fine. (Or at least put his head right over the water so he can find it. Putting him IN the bowl isn't necessary, lol.)

Btw, here's her picture:
