Unhappy Veiled chameleon not eating help!



Hi people ive had my chameleon for 6 months and he is roughly ten months old he's called yoda and he's generally quite a happy fella.
But recently he's stopped eating altogether so far ive only fed him locusts and he seemed fine eating them but the past week he wont touch them, ive bought some mealworms and try'd him with them but he doesnt want them either, he's still drinking and moving around with no problems but im getting worried he might have hurt his tounge or somthing! the reptile shop where i bought him said they stop eating this time of year but i cant see how that can be true. please can any1 help???

when it gets colder, they don't neccisarly stop eating, just slow way down, he should get hungery soon, try in a day or so to feed him something, maybe try roaches.
