The photo is a bit blur. I can't get a clear view. I am not expert, but I guess you may look closely whether the crown is still healthy. New leaf should always be green, even during dormancy.

Just keep it drier, don't water too much, after about 1.5 to 2 months (better 2 months), break the dormancy manually by repotting it. (Method for tropical growers only)
