His nails might be catching on the carpet.

It looks like he has slight pyramiding, however I am not an expert.

It's hard to tell from pics. Video would be better. Mine sticks his back legs out like they. They look like elephant legs lol.

I think you should be perhaps more concerned about making some changes to his husbandry. Please read the care sheets on this forum for the correct care for this species. Thank you and all the best for his good progress.

It is in a temporary enclosure. During the summer it will be getting a 6 by 4 enclosure.

We can't tell if the tortoise is walking correctly from pictures. We CAN tell that the tortoise is being housed and cared for incorrectly by looking at the carapace. This tortoise is being housed far too dry. It needs a larger enclosure, correct humidity, good hydration, good UV, proper temperatures, and proper lighting. 6x3 is too small.

Please read this and make the needed changes ASAP before this gets any worse:
