Baby tegu brumation

if a 4 month old male tegu hibernate, will he end up smaller then a tegu that doesn’t hibernate within their first year? I know they are supposed to grow a ton in their first year.

I would not worry about it, he will be smaller than a Tegu who doesn't hibernate but only for the first year. Hibernating does not effect how big they end up when they reach their full size as adults.
