Hello,

I’m sure he’ll be fine if you just leave him in a warmish temp, e.g. room temperature. And for him drinking, get a spray bottle and put it on a fine mist, spray once a day and he’ll drink the little droplets.

Also them being sluggish can mean they’re about to go through metamophorsis. Basically they’re going to pupate to turn into a butterfly/moth.

Cheers!
