Yea something is off. Where did you get the chameleon from? You said you just got him a few days ago so im curious if its an issue that has been going on prior to you receiving him or if stress from the change in environment is causing it. I would definitely bring a sample to a exotic vet to have tested for parasites soon rather than later just to be sure.
