    He should be able to eat large crickets so I don’t think it would be to big

    If you feed him at night you should change to mornings. They need time to bask to digest his food. They bask not only to keep warm but basking helps with their digestion so he doesn't wind up inpacted.

    Fiona's Mom Chameleon Enthusiast posted the thread in the evening so I thought you had just fed him since you were worried he might be choking.

    Just a heads up this is perfectly normal my chameleon does this every time he eats. I think it's just how they swallow

    I have never seen my chameleon do this in order to swallow. They are perfectly capable of swallowing with their heads parallel to the ground. Tilting the head up like that can sometimes indicate other problems like a RI, I'd keep an eye out.
