    That seems about right to me.
    Crested geckos grow at varied rates. Lots of factors can affect how they grow.
    I have a few hatchlings that were hatched out this summer that are around 3-4 grams and one has grown more than the others and is about 5 grams. I have a crestie that is nearly a year old that still is barely over 5 grams and another about the same age that is 20 grams now.
    So as long as he's eating and pooping, you have nothing to worry about.

    I think I will start giving him/her occasional live feeders.

    That should definitely help with growth.
    Also the pangea flavor that includes insects is a favorite and will also help provide some additional protein.

    It's the favorite flavor in my gecko room! It gets a great feeding response.

    Do you have a small terrarium? What are you keeping it in currently? You could use a 12 x 12 x 12 terrarium, or even a kritter keeper or faunarium .... I use the keepers for my wee ones ... from the day they hatch until they are about 7 gr or so ... then I upgrade to a larger tank like a 12 x 12 x 12 .... changing up the food is good, but don't do it too much. And watch the size of the live feeders ... can't have them too big ...

    I am very careful about my pets, He was in a kritter keeper but was not ever moving and always seemed stressed.

    i don't alternate very often but I do want him to have a varied diet.
