he looks a bit plump some beardies just do has he been for a poo lately? so will look fat if they haven't had a poo for a few days, do the biggest turd you have ever seen, then "shink back to normal size how much does he eat in the average day.
When basking beardies will often "flatten themselves out" in order to absorb more heat,
I'm editing this as I was down the pub half cut, ehich is never a good idea giving advise, (edits will be in red sorry)

At 5months old I would offer live food 6days a week, and fruit veg salad every day(a nice viarity). Cut the mealworms down to a couple a few days a week
As they are harder to digest and not as nutritional as other live food

Note to self don't give advise when

Sometimes you cant beat a bit of honesty!

Kumala.. I'm not sure if you've seen this link in the past but its a really good list on what to feed and how often, it also gives advice on nutricional values. Well worth you having a look at and following the guides set out
