Hibernation? Should I feed?

So I know your not supposed to feed your tegu if he's going to hibernate bit I'm not 100%sure that's what my tegu is doing. It's more like brumating. He's slowed down, not eating anything and will sleep for 3 days. I thought he was going to hibernate because he went down for a week but then he was up for 4 days. I haven't fed him in 2 weeks and I'm a little concerned he's not going to go down completely. Should I feed him?

If he can heat up, no harm in offering food especially if not fully down for the winter.

Yeah his lamp is still on most of the day. I've shortened his hours slightly because he still comes out once in a while. Ok I'll offer him food then, thank you!! :)
