Hi and welcome to RFUK!

As said above - it would indicate that the basking temp is too low. Most Bearded dragon caresheets recommend a basking spot temp of around 110-115F for young beardies. Caresheets are only a guideline tho and your best indicator is the behaviour of your reptile. Increase the basking spot temp. If the ambient temperatures in your viv are ok (75ish cool end, 85ish warm end and 110ish basking spot with a drop at night to around 70ish - sorry all fahrenheit) then raise the basking spot nearer to your bulb. What percentage UVb do you have?

Eublepharis macularius 7.18
Timon lepidus 2.1
Lygodactylus williamsi 4.0
Teratoscincus roborowski 1.0
Phelsuma grandis 2.2
Bellatorias frerei 1.2
Pogona vitticeps 1.0
