Default How big should a baby be before separating from mother

How much should the baby hedgehog weigh before being separated from mom. I know it is 6weeks but one of my babies is 58g and still fairly small. This little male is 58g while his brothers are 78g and 92g. His sister is 88g. They are all 6weeks. I have separated the 3.

I would separate them all and just keep an eye on the small one to make sure he keeps gaining.
