Default Age?

Hello again all,
Random question here; Since I got Chretien from someone who had no real knowledge of his past I was wondering if you guys can think of any way to get a general idea of your hedgehogs age? I have another post on here and there is a bunch of pictures is there any way to tell his age from them?

Unless he quills there is no way to tell for certain. Sometimes they have a young look to them but this is not always accurate either. My Gizmo was a rescue and he always looked like a baby even when he passed away after I'd had him almost 3 years.

Thanks for the response! Thats the bad part about rescues I guess. His quills are very very sharp (I know that sounds crazy but when he huffs and spikes they are enough to make you bleed), maybe he is quilling? He is not loosing many though.
I overthink things and I was just hoping me and my grumpy little guy will have many years to go.
