Question Questions about feeding found, escaped snake

Hello!
I've just recently found my (<one year old) corn snake after escaping for almost 3 months.


I just have a few questions regarding feeding:

1) When I should start feeding him again?
I don't want to stress him out by feeding him too soon.

2) How frequently should I be feeding him?
Should I give him a while to settle back in?

3) How big of a meal should he start on?
Should I resume as normal, or give him smaller meals for a bit?


He's around 54cm x 1cm and was eating 1~cm wide pinkies before escaping.
Other than a few scuff marks on his head, he looks good physically. He's been exploring his tank as he did before, as well as basking. He's also a good eater, took all meals offered to him before escaping.

What does he weigh? I would probably just give him 2 or 3 days before feeding him.

I agree, give him a couple days to settle back in, then offer a meal.
