Default Boy or girl?

Hi there! My hedgehog Junie, much to everyone's surprise, had babies a couple of weeks ago. They're almost four weeks old now- old enough to sex- but some I'm having trouble with, as I've never done this before. So here's my question... is this little guy a boy or a girl? I thought he was a boy up until recently. Now I'm not so sure.

i think female. A male would have a bump in the middle of all four legs, closer to the chin.

That's what I was thinking. Oh well! Melvin is now Jilly.

Do you have any photos with that belly stretched out a bit more? I think it's a boy. There's too much skin before the bump. If he keeps curling up, put him in a clear glass pan. He'ell stand up and then you'll be able to get a better look.

Oh, okay. For now Jilly is Melvin again! I'm going to get pictures of all the babies to clarify their sex. I don't want to mislead their soon-to-be new owners.

We just held Melvin. He unrolled very nicely for us, and we were able to determine- gasp!- that he is most certainly a boy. That photo was misleading...
