He seems pale and has a white-ish color with yellow stripe which you can see on the picture.

How long have you had him? Do you have a full cage photo? Looks barren in that shot... A lot of foliage for him to hide in will help him feel safe and his color should brighten up. He could be close to a shed as well.

Might be a good idea to fill out the help form and post it below. The form can be found in my signature.

no, he was walking good, just broke a few ribs i think... I know he was in pain, but He just wanted to be left alone. He healed in like 3-4 days, you can feel his ribs..... This is over 4 months ago. That being said, You "should" take him to the vet... Mine satayed white for about 6 mins then he was back to normal.

Yeah..... Get some Live plants, take up basically 85% of all that space.... Don’t fog with Basking light on, and Most Important consider better lighting for him.

In addition to proper lighting ( linear t5) I would urge you to add plants and branches asap please feel free to ask for help don't take the advice as criticism but your giving that poor thing a death sentence as is.

Your post with sunken eyes is likely caused from dehydration. If your not gutloading and using suppliments on feeders you'll likely have a vitamin deficiency as well vitamin A is a common one that effects eye health.
