Non-thermalized dark matter is a cosmologically viable alternative to the widely studied weakly interacting massive particle. We study the evolution of the dark matter phase-space distributions arising from freeze-in and superWIMP production as well as the combination of both. Utilizing our implementation in CLASS, we investigate the cosmological imprints on the matter power spectrum, constrained by Lyman-$\alpha$ forest observations. For the explicit example of a colored $t$-channel mediator model, we explore the cosmologically allowed parameter space highlighting the interplay of Lyman-$\alpha$ constraints with those from Big Bang Nucleosynthesis and the LHC.

very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
