Leopard Gecko eating too much?

I've had this guy for just over a month and just noticed a lump under his arm tonight while holding him. There is one on the other side as well, but it's not as large. Google says this is because he is overweight. I didn't think I was over feeding him, but I wanted to ask to be safe! He eats 10-12 crickets or mealworms every other day. Should I feed him every third day? Or less every other day? I've only had geckos for a couple of months, so I'm still learning. Just want to do what's best for the little guy! It was hard to get a good pic of it, so I apologize if it's a bit blurry. I'll add a few more pics so you can see his size. Thanks!

He does look kind of chunky. I fed my leopard geckos twice a week (Monday and Thursday). Maybe you should try that.
