Well, we're gonna need some more info about your setup and things.

Cage Info:
Cage Type - What kind of cage are you using? What is the size?
Lighting - What kind of lighting are you using? How long do you keep the lights on during the day?
Temperature - What temperature range have you created? Basking spot temp? What is the temperature at night?
Humidity - What are your humidity levels? How are you creating and maintaining these levels?
Plants - Are you using live plants? If so, what kind?

Chameleon Info:

Oh, and a waterfall is not a good idea. Its a way for bacteria to create which is bad for your chameleons health. Have you tried misting him?
um... i read on the internet when the cameleon leans on the glass its wants a drink. but. i had 2 a female cameleon. she died from not drinkin. i had a jackson was happy till his female partner died. then he died. i have my other 4 and they drink from my hand. like i spray the bottel and they drink alot. just when im not around i need for them to drink insted of out of my hand. my big viel he go to the water fall and drink him and action. they go and drink. other 2 are smaller so i dont think they no what to do yet.
If your chams aren't drinking you should immediately seek a vet. You can get the spray bottle and put it to the cham's mouth and squirt a little; it'll then start licking most likely. Don't do this with small chams
