Can I message a guy first who broke up with me?

This guy who I've been talking to seriously for 5 weeks broke up with me and friend zoned me because he says he isn't over his ex. I knew he was still struggling from his breakup (ended a month before we started 'dating',) but he constantly reassured me that I was not a rebound and that he very much wanted to be with me and give us the best chance. The breakup was mature and respectful. Three weeks later no one texted anyone. Is it okay if I text to check in on him and see if he's doing okay, with out setting expectations or will he get the wrong message?
PS. I don't want him back, just really want to check in on him, but don't want to come off as needy cuz genuinely I don't want him back. Or should I not message at all?
