It does depend. Younger snakes will have a faster metabolism than older snakes. If you have a baby, it should poop about every week or so. An older snake will take longer.

this friday will be feeding number 4 since i got him..feed him every week and he hasnt deficated or anything since i have had him.

You may wanna stop feeding him if he hasn't gone to the bathroom yet. Feel his belly just above his tail to see if you can feel anything hard inside of him. He may be impacted :( Did he come from a pet store? Almost every single snake I've gotten from a pet store has been impacted :/ ... I don't know what the deal is.

Yes I did, I will skip his feeding friday. What should I do if he doesnt deficate soon?

I didnt feel anything felt the last 3-4 inches off his tail and didnt feel anything hard

Give him a warm soak. That usually does it. Not too warm. Just add enough hot water to take the sting of the cold out.
