The part people are concerned about is that his limbs (especially his elbows) look abnormal in your picture. You probably are giving him UV, calcium, and vitamins, but chameleons are notoriously delicate. The people asking questions are looking to figure out if something might be off so they can fix it before it causes him (more) problems or kills him

that back leg is telling me he probably has MBD. MBD needs to be stoped early. It won't get much better but can stop. he doesn't look to bad but it gets worse.

Unfortunately, I don't see a linear UV lamp; T5 are recommended, but you can get away with a t8. There look to be a few other things that could be addressed by the help form, but the light alone may lead to the start of MBD. I assume you have a compact bulb, which are sold without adaquate disclaimers; mainly that they're pretty much useless if the animal isn't within 3 inches or so for the whole day. You guy's forearms look to have a bit of a bend; compare them to the photos of my dude I attached (he's a bit chubby, but you can see the straight line from elbow to ankle). Luckily, MBD can be halted and the animal live a healthy life if caught and corrected earlt
