unfortunately I do not have a hygrometer, but the substrate is well moisturized, according to my opinion, whether humidity can be the cause

What incubation substrate are you using?
You really should get a hydrometer
Check them with a flashlight just to be sure their fertile

What incubator are you using?
I’d say make the humidity a bit higher and get a hydrometer to see if the humidity is in check.
Don’t give up on the eggs even if they carry on denting a little more they still might hatch.

If the geckos you bred weren’t supplemented with enough calcium and d3 it might make the egg a bit weaker and the hatching might have some problems. But the eggs in this case seem fine i wouldn’t worry.

They could be drying out. Get some sphagnum moss, dampen it and place over the eggs. Until you can get some you can use some damp kitchen towel.

Ok then everything seems good, just keep an eye on the temp and humidity and you should be fine. Keep me updated on the eggs i’d love to know when they hatch. Anything else I can help you with?

Just place some damp kitchen towel over the top of the eggs. There is no need to move the eggs at all. If the eggs begin to plump out then you can take the kitchen towel off. It will not hurt the eggs as long as the kitchen towel is not too wet. Dampen the towel and squeeze excess moisture out of it with your hands. Hope that helps.

Hello, it's me again. Eggs from the post are growing. You can see the movements of the gecko. My question is how long it takes to incubate at 30 ° C, 86 ° F. Thank you very much in advance.
