Weird shed?

I’ve had my leopard gecko for a couple of years and he’s never had a very bad shed. I’m a newbie to reptiles but I’ve never seen shed quite like this. It’s not flakey at all compared to the rest of him. It goes from normal colored to pale with no other signs of shedding. Found him like this in the morning. I tried giving him a soak but nothing budged. Is this normal? Thank you so much!

You happen to have caught him at the very beginning of the shedding process. He will get all frosty looking and after that the skin will start to separate. It's just too early for him to actually shed the skin.
