Need Help (What's going on with his shell?)

I have a Herman Tortoise named George he is 6 1/2 years old and I'm wondering what's going on with his shell. He walks, eats normally he is active and his eyes and nose are clear and his tongue is nice and pink also his number 1s and 2s are regular and normal looking, his beak does need a trim and he has access to a water dish and his basking area is 92 degrees F.

I will add a photo of his shell later as he is currently sleeping and I don't have any good pics of his shell.

I'm currently undating his lighting situation to include a Zoomed Reptisun 10.0 T5 linear bulb but I'm wondering about vitamins I'm currently using Zoomed ReptiCalium with D3 but I'm wanting to add a multivitamin as well but I'm not sure what to get.

But here is a cute photo of him

If you mean the bumps. That's called pyramiding.
It looks like he was raised poorly for a while, then was kept in better, more humid condition.
It's new, nice growth with some old pyramiding.
He needs high humidity. And proper UVB lighting such as sunlight.
