That enclosure is too small at his size already. He should be using at least the 36x18x36 Exo Terra if you really want to use it. The proper enclosure has twice the room as yours. Also, it appears there is very little access to the top 2/3rds. Please fill out the how to ask for help form, and post more pictures. You will need to have the pet shop exchange the enclosures, they are very wrong.

Classic case of the pet shop selling a customer a more expensive item that is not recommended for a particular animal...

24in x 24in x 48in tall enclosure is recommended for male panthers. You should also fill the enclosure with lots of plants and climbing vines and branches. Ill post an example of my male veiled enclosure for reference. Here is a couple links to read over as well: https://www.chameleonforums.com/care/enclosures/
