Glen usually a sign of low heat & too much humidity, increase ambient heat to around 85/90f & don’t drop night time ambient below 80f back ground, also make sure they’ve got a good basking spot measured with a temp gun, 120/130f ( surface temp).

Try & decrease humidity smaller water bowl etc, remove any watery substrate, or add more dry substrate to soak the dampness up.

I don’t know what setup you have, how big etc so be careful & monitor what’s going on in there.

Also the more sure bet is get you pet to a vet! :)
