Some people don't see them for months. You may have to target feed because they usually eat small organisms in the sand and will separate them of the have size in them. What size tank is this in?

I guess it's normal. I bought one a month ago and it took him a few days to come out. Then, when he finally did venture out, he swam all over the tank, but he was upside down. He's chilled out within the last week and a half or so.
