It’s fine man hahaha. They can move by themselves. You could always pick him up and put him back on his back.

Here's a time lapse video of the motions that a Dynastes pupa goes through prior to eclosion.  Incidentally, those occasional "sparkles" on the pupa's surface are droplets of condensation caused by fluctuations in humidity.
