as long as he's keeping them down and not regurgatating your fine. a general rule is to feed the snake food items 1.5 times the diameter of the thickest part of its body. from there its up to how often you want to feed it.

If he's eating 3 fuzzies every 4 days, I'd suggest moving him up to 2 hoppers every 5-7 days. My female is 22-24 inches and she eats two hoppers every 5-7 days and my male is 28-30 inches and he eats the same. You are just shy of 6 fuzzies a week, so it is time to move to hoppers.
