my other one just did a while ago now their both bigger and the one with one claw has his other claw now but that claw is small will he shed again when his claw grows?

Yes, they all shed, it's one of the reasons they are called "shellfish". It will continue to shed over and over as it outgrows it's current shell.

it's important to let them eat their shells, so they can recycle the nutrients.
