Well you will never really be able to figure out his exact age, but maybe by posting his length and girth it would make it easier.. Shedding depends on how much hes eating or how fast the individual snake is growing, its pretty much impossible to tell age by that measure

I move my neo-corns up from pinks on their 5-6th feeding so at about a month an a 1/2 after birth, maybe 13-17 grams, at 4 months their about 30-35 grams and will be moving to hoppers an a weekly schedule right after warming up from brumation. by 8-9 months they should be up to juveniles. As for fuzzies figure the last 2 knuckles of the average sized man's pinky finger for size

good way of knowing when to move to fuzzies is when u cant see a significant bulge after ur snake has eaten.
most snake when young will shed about every 4-6 weeks and after about 1.5 - 2 yrs this will slow down alot. have fun my fellow brit!
