OK a few things.

How often do you mist?

Food- you need fruit flies and pinhead crickets to feed. offer those, and im sure it will start eating.

fecal- you take a poo to a vet to test for parasites.

what type of cage? height, dimensions, etc?

Pics of everything would be great.

Your temps are a bit too low, which can cause them to not eat. try getting the basking temp up to around 82, and see how things go.

supplements- you need a calcium with no d3 for every feeding, and a calcium with d3 for twice a month, and a multivitamin for twice a month as well.

Whoever sold you this baby, did so when it was way too young, we don't recommend selling before 3 months old.


What camimom says is all true, fruit flies are a great idea.
It is too soon to start worrying though. Chameleons often take a few days to settle in to a new home. The best thing to do is offer different tiny insects but disturb her as little as possible for now.
