He is slowly starting to eat other colored foods but he is stubborn. He sure loves his crickets also. He is about 6 months old now. I like putting his food in my hand while holding him so he can catch it. Does Horny look healthy?

I bought them three weeks ago, and was giving it breathing room to settle in. However, since I have started to handle it more regularly I noticed that either the left size of its face is too big or the right is too small. Both pupils dilate but it walks with a head tilt, big eye forward. It is fairly active when handled but I have only noticed 3 droppings since they got here. I am not sure of it has gained or lost weight, but I have a scale on the way so I can start keeping track. My question is, does this little one need any special care/ will its health be affected by this deformity? I have seen many posts about juvenile geckos like this but never a follow up with how they are doing months or years later.

I just wanted to show how big he has gotten since last month. He sure loves his fruits and veggies as long as they are green. He is slowly starting to eat other colored foods but he is stubborn. He sure loves his crickets also. He is about 6 months old now. I like putting his food in my hand while holding him so he can catch it. Does Horny look healthy?
