Give your hedgie couple of days to adjust first. Always handle your hedgie daily for at least 30 mins. Be persistent It will take time so never give up! Best of luck

You could also try the t-shirt trick, where you wear an old shirt for a day or so and then put it in his cage. That way he might get used to your smell a little more quickly.
