Best course of action: Find out what they were feeding him at the pet shop. Many pet shops feed baby sulcatas way too sugary of a diet. His diet should consist mostly of grasses.
this site is a great source of info.
Also make sure he is getting calcium and uvb. these things perk up energy a lot.
And baths!! They love a good warm soak
Baby sulcatas should be very active and eager to explore!
