 Box turtle throat puffing/ head bobbing

Hello, Recently my box turtle started to puff out his throat and bob his head. He is about a year and a half old. I currently have him in a two by four wooden enclosure; itís about 77 degrees F with a 60% humidity level. I was thinking it could be a respiratory infection but he is not making any abnormal noise or mouth gaping and he does not have any nasal discharge. Understand that I have no problem taking him to the vet I just want to confirm this is abnormal behavior. He is eating normally but has dropped from 109 grams to 104.

Thanks alot-
