I recently got a juvenile veiled chameleon and I noticed from the day I got him and I to now I see brown lumps on his feet. And the last 2 days he hasn't been moving around his cage as often.

That is a problem. Pictures would help and possibly some answers about his general care would be very helpful.

Veiled chameleon male, had him for a week
I haven't handled him at all, I've been letting him get used to his cage
I mainly feed him crickets around 3pm when I get home
I have a drip system so he could have water throughout the day
He has a mediem screen enclosure
Basking spot is around 90 degrees and the bottom of his cage is around 75-80
Its hard maintaining his humidity, rn it's at 40
His cage is in my room

Hi there and welcome. If you could fill out the whole help form that was provided we can give more thorough feedback.

Temperature is too high and you should really be feeding him in the morning so he has time to digest. You will need a larger enclosure for him sooner then later. I don't see anything wrong with the feet specifically either.
