 Charlie is ill i think

Hello This is my first time using this site so will give you some background info. I currently have 2 geckos 1. Sammy he is 1 and a half years old and is doing great has just got a new big home and no problems there. 2. Charlie we got from a pet shop about a week ago now we think from looking at her/him that charlie is only 1 month old.
Now since we got here we tried her on baby crickets with a couple of legs off to slow them down and now trying meal worms. Charlie has had one meal worm in the whole time we have had her/him (cant sex it yet) This was done by showing charlie it and she took it, since then has not shown any interest in food and is starting to look very skinny (back protruding up) when we got her she was skinny and almost see through she is now starting to get some colour but not eating.
Her home is Sammy old one Cleaned out with temp of 75-80 at night and 80-85 during day and a nice big hiding hut. She was found laying in her water dish this morning which i have not seen before?
Please help me find out whats wrong.
The first photo is of charlie, the second is of Sammy playing hide and seek while his house being cleaned and the 3rd is Sammy Just being him.

I feel bad for the little guy.I definently think he is sick. I do know a little bit though about lizards. if you got him recently he might feel a little bit scared because of his knew cage and still might of not adapted to his surroundings. Or he might not feel to safe if the cage is kind of small. Lizards like moderately big cages. Thats why its best not to touch him much and let him get used to his surroundings and people first. It could just be his food too. try experimenting with different types of food.
