I don't have hermit crabs, but we have a frog and a chameleon. Hiding from the world at first seems very normal to me. Indeed, the chameleon seems to live to hide even now, 5 months after we brought him home. My advice is to google: "hermit crabs" + care + young
See if you don't get some instructions that make you feel better about it all. I know the internet was vital in helping me understand my chameleon (he's mine...the frog is my daughter's...all the crickets they eat are mine...yes, I have pets I feed to my other pets).
