Congrats on your new baby. My little girl did that also for a few days. I just pick her up gently with some fleece and then I just put her on my lap. She would unroll and then want to hide again in the fleece. Give her a few days and she will come around for you hopefully. Now when I take them out there unroll almost right away and run up and down me and the couch. Please post more pics. Good luck and congrats again with your new baby! :D

Welcome to the land of hedgehogs.
Also, I doubt he's a salt and pepper. They're very rare.

Are they? I didn't know that, something I love about this forum is that I end up learning so many things here :)
Which is the most common color?
