Hi and welcome to the Forums! I would definately split your boys into 3 separate cages as soon as you can. With one being 1/3 larger than the other 2, he's "bullying" (even if you can't see it) the other 2 to get more food, UVB, basking heat, etc. Separate them, and also make sure you put up visual dividers so they can't see each other. Even though they are brothers, just seeing each other will stress them out, and could cause death (I lost my first panther this way, unfortunately). If you put the cages in a line, so they are all next to each other, you'll only need 2 dividers, 1 between cages 1 and 2, and 1 between cages 2 and 3. Feel free to ask any other questions you need, and don't forget to check out the Chameleon Care Sheets on the Home page - they are filled with great info just to double check anything you need.
