Hi, and welcome!

In order for the shell to grow smoothly, the baby must be kept in a warm, humid environment. They develop those humps when kept too dry.

Just remember, if you keep him in a moist environment you must also keep him warm. Don't allow the enclosure to get any cooler than about 27C, and warmer is even better.
