Thank you. There are two possible reasons for poor gtiwth and lack of weight hain.
The first reason would be a parasie issue. This could be a good pissibility. All Reptiles cannor parsites in the gut andhey can bloom which is an overabindance that causes the food not nt to absrb causing low weight and poor growth rate.
THe other issue is in the breebreedingding and the line the snake came from. Some bteeders do a lot of inbtreeding which can cause groth pattern issues as well as low weight.
I suggest a Herp Vet visit to have a gecal done and to speak with him about a Vitamin injection to aid with htowth and weight.
Please reply to discuss this ingo.
