Hello! Glad you like him. He's a male Common Flat Lizard! They are indeed very flat, allowing them to squeeze into very narrow crevices.

I'm sorry he would need t hide. He's too handsome to go unseen.

They only hide when directly threatened! A lot of the time they are out and, indeed, showing off. They lift themselves up and down on the rocks to show their brightly coloured throats and bellies as well .
