I may be absolutely nothing as sometimes snakes will just go a bit longer between poos. However it does sound strange that its a baby corn as they usually poo like clock work. It may be impaction which means it has swallowed a bit of substrate during feeding. You may be able to solve this by putting the snake in a bucket or bath wit luke warm water for an hour. it may poo in the water or later that day as a result
It may also be that you are not feeding the snake enough for its size. what size is it. my snakes will sort of save the poo up so that they always poo the same amount. so if i feed them one mouse instead of two they won't just poo half the amount at the same time after feeding
