Premolt?
My tarantula looks to be in premolt. Hasn’t eaten in about 3 weeks because it’s abdomen was too big but it’s only gotten bigger and now it’s missing a lot of hair and is shiny. Its last molt was about 3-4 months ago and it is around 3 inches right now. What do you guys think?
Possibly very early premolt, but the skin underneath doesn't quite look dark enough for me to say 100%. However, it looks very plump so it also just may not be hungry.

I was told to stop feeding it on here a while ago so I haven’t been but today I was going to feed it but it looked very strange so I wanted to ask in case it is in premolt and I shouldn’t feed it .. I guess I’ll maybe try feeding it a small cricket and see if it takes it

Honestly I don't think think it even needs to eat until it's next molt. Looks very plump. Maybe every few weeks, try feeding it a small cricket as a snack, but I wouldn't worry if it's not eating.
