Is he going to the bathroom in his sleeping area? It is also possible that the poop from his wheel is falling onto his quills. Hedgehogs are normally relatively clean animals, so it is hard to imagine one rolling in their own poop.

Unfortunately all you can do is keep his cage and wheel clean. Give him a bath, clean his cage well, and see if it occurs again.
