I have noticed recently with a new addition when it is moving around the legs seem very Restless and it also has some flashing patches of chromatophore
Im not sure if this is something i should be worried about or just a juvenile adapting to a new habitat ( wild caught)

Please consider journaling your little guy. There is a restless behavior that comes with senescence (particularly in males). If it is end of life old age you should notice that the animal's color (although not all species do this) is quite gray and somewhat patchy when it tries to display its dark coloration.

Alternate, more positive thoughts are a male looking for a female or hunger but, without a few photos and species id, it is hard to guess.
