What do you feed him? He might need more fiber in his diet. Now you can give him a little bit of unseasoned plain pumpkin or unseasoned plain squash, and see if that helps. If he still doesn't poop then he might need to see a vet. Is there anything in the cage that he could have eaten and is causing a blockage? What kind of bedding/litter do you use?

Give him the pumpkin! If he continues to be constipated, he could end up with a prolapsed rectum, which he could die from.
