Totally normal. Its what they do in the wild to hide from predators. As he gets used to his surrondings, and get's bigger, he will make more frequent appearances. Continue to bath him, and feed him. Humidity is very important, as well as a full spectrum bulb.

If you keep him warm over the winter, he will grow quicker - I wouldn't try to hibernate him.
