So I've had a juvi frilled dragon since the end of February.
When I first got him, I watched him devour crickets all around the cage. After the first day, I was lucky to get to see him eat, but I'm sure he did, as he looked healthy and stayed very active and a good weight.
In the past month or so, he's been getting a little less active. Sleeping sometimes during the day, nothing that I found to be a problem. He was still nice and a little plump. I tried to feed him wax worms about three weeks ago. I don't think he ate many, so I kept a decent amount of crickets in his cage. Then I tried mealworms about a week or two ago. I don't think he was a huge fan of those either. He started getting a lot less active (and sleeping a lot more during the day) some time last week, so I bought silk worms to make sure he was staying healthy. He ate a bunch one day, I think Friday, and then hasn't really eaten since.
Monday and yesterday he was looking pretty bad, so last night, I forced two silk worms in his mouth. He's moving around a lot more than before, but still is very sleepy and lazy. I put some monitor diet (catfood type stuff) on his lips and he just wiped it off. I don't know how to be sure if he's eating anything on his own or not.
So anyway, I just came on here on a buddy's account to ask you guys for some advice. Do you think he can't handle the bones in the worms? (It does look like he's having a bit of a harder time when he poos)

Thanks for reading all of this, and thank you in advance for any help. I tried to give the best history I could.
