Default Is his cage good?

I got a new hedgehog and I want to make sure his cage is good. Pics aren't the greatest, but I tried (heating will be coming immediately) Pics of him too.

Yea it looks too small to me. If you are at a budget and need a big cage thats not like 100$ or something I'll tell you about the one I have, I have the MidWest Guinea Habitat Guinea Pig Home, and it the perfect size it's prettyyy big and I got it for 50$ on chewy.com but right now it's on sale for 25$! It's cheap and big. My hedgehog loves the cage too. And I know people get worried about their hedgehogs escaping cages well maci my hedgie has never escaped from it so yea.

It only looks small because the wheel is massive and the pigloo is too, he likes it though.

The pigloo really is a little too big for the cage, but he enjoys sleeping in it so we are all good.

How big is the cage? Also I can't quite tell from the pictures, what's on the end opposite from the igloo?

I would recommend looking into a different wheel - the one you have is the Silent Spinner, and they're known to be dangerous to hedgehogs. They have small cracks where the white & colored parts meet and hedgehogs have gotten nails caught & ripped off in those cracks. If you really can't afford to replace it right now, you can use hot glue or something similar to fill in the cracks as a short term solution. But it'll make it harder to clean the wheel, so it'd still be a good idea to replace it when you can. Bucket wheels can be made following youtube tutorials, or you can buy them online from breeders that make them. Carolina Storm Wheels is a really popular wheel seller.

Across from the igloo is the food and water, the wheel is being fixed, and the cage is pretty large. It's like 3 feet long by 1.5 feet wide. It might not be the best, but the hedgehog is still a baby, so he fits for now.
