Big problem.
He has MBD.
Thats a bad thing.
Do you dust his food?
Does he have a UVB light?
You can’t really reverse it..
But you can stop it..
And its up to you.
Dust his food with regular pure calcuim 5 days a week, and with D3 wice a week.

Can you describe his setup?temps, humidity, size, substrate, etc.
And do you change his UVB light every 6-12 months?
What do you dust with?

If it gets bad just take him to a vet they usually do something like a vitamin shot/booster.

Pure calcium about 5 days a week, and D3 twice a week to absorb it is what you need.
I dont know what your repti cal has, but im sure you’ll need one more bottle of the opposite.
You care sounds great, maybe it was the previous owners care. He is just a baby so let him adjust.
If it gets any worse then a vet is your best choice.
