I bought my new cornsnake just under 3 weeks ago he is 4 years old and 61" long I have fed him twice since I got him but he has not pooped, I am worried that he is constipated. Can anyone tell me how I could tell if he is constipated and what to do if he is? Or is there any thing else that could be wrong with him?

Are you certain he hasn't pooped ?

Nothing in three weeks does sound a bit odd. It's not buried in the substrate, or under a hide or something ?

I sometimes think there's nothing in there, and then I do my monthly total cleaning. You'd be surprised at how easy it is to loose it in something like aspen, especially if they're eating pinkies. There's very little poop. Unless he's looking super bloated at the tail end, I think he's pooping, you're just not finding it.
